V.; Persson, Clas; Schaden, Martin; Brevik, Iver Håkon; Parsons, Drew F.; Milton, Kimball A.; Malyi, Oleksandr; Boström, Mathias (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)In order to understand why carbon dioxide ( CO 2 ) and methane ( CH 4 ) molecules interact differently with surfaces, we investigate the CasimirPolder energy of a linearly polarizable CO 2 molecule and an isotropically ... 
Axion electrodynamics and the axionic Casimir effect
Brevik, Iver Håkon (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)A general scheme for axion electrodynamics is given, in which a surrounding medium of constant permittivity and permeability is assumed. Then, as an application, we provide simple numerical estimates for the electromagnetic ...

Can the gammaray bursts travelling through the interstellar space be explained without invoking the drastic assumption of Lorentz invariance violation?
Chaichian, Masud; Brevik, Iver Håkon; Oksanen, Markku (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)Experimental observations indicate that gammaray bursts (GRB) and highenergy neutrino bursts may travel at different speeds with a typical delay measured at the order of hours or days. We discuss two potential interpretations ... 
Can the Hubble tension be resolved by bulk viscosity?
Normann, Ben David; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)We show that the cosmic bulk viscosity estimated in our previous works is sufficient to bridge the H0 value inferred from observations of the early universe with the value inferred from the local (late) universe. 
The Casimir effect for fermionic currents in conical rings with applications to graphene ribbons
Bellucci, S.; Brevik, Iver Håkon; Saharian, A. A.; Sargsyan, H. G.

Casimir energies for isorefractive or diaphanous balls
Milton, Kimball A.; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)It is known that the Casimir selfenergy of a homogeneous dielectric ball is divergent, although a finite selfenergy can be extracted through second order in the deviation of the permittivity from the vacuum value. The ... 
Casimir energies of selfsimilar plate configurations
Shajesh, Kuloth Vayalombron; Brevik, Iver Håkon; CaveroPelaez, Ines; Parashar, Prachi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)We construct various selfsimilar configurations using parallel δfunction plates and show that it is possible to evaluate the Casimir interaction energy of these configurations using the idea of selfsimilarity alone. We ... 
Casimir force and its relation to surface tension
Høye, Johan Skule; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)From energy considerations there is reason to expect that the work done by Casimir forces during a slow displacement of the parallel plates reflects the free energy of the surface tension of the adjacent surfaces. We show ... 
Casimir force between a halfspace and a plate of finite thickness
Høye, Johan Skule; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)Zerofrequency Casimir theory is analyzed from different viewpoints, with the aim of obtaining further insight into the delicate Drudeplasma issue that turns up when one considers thermal corrections to the Casimir force. ...
