The Casimir energy between nanostructured gratings of arbitrary periodic

Johann Lussange, Romain Guérout, Astrid Lambrecht
We study the lateral dependence of the Casimir energy for different corrugated gratings of arbitrary periodic profile. To this end we model the profiles as stacks of horizontal rectangular slices following the profiles' shape and evaluate numerically the Casimir energy between them for different relative lateral displacements of the two corrugated plates. We compare our results with predictions obtained within the proximity force approximation (PFA). At comparable separation of the corrugated plates and geometric parameters, we find a strong dependence of the Casimir energy on the shape of the corrugation profiles.
