Boosting the Force of Empty Space

Two atoms exchanging a virtual photon. Empty space around them is not as empty as one might think.

Vacuum fluctuations may be among the most counter-intuitive phenomena of quantum physics. Theorists from the Weizmann Institute (Rehovot, Israel) and the Vienna University of Technology propose a way to amplify their force.Mehr
