In a guest lecture at the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing, Dr. Peter Milonni of the Los Alamos National Laboratory explains Casimir effects.

Casimir effects are generally regarded as manifestations of zero-point energies of quantum fields. The best-known Casimir effects are those associated with the electromagnetic vacuum field; these are of great current interest not only for basic physics but also for their implications for nanotechnology. Following a brief review of the concept of zero-point energy, and experimental evidence for it, attention is be focused on the most famous Casimir effect---the force between two perfectly conducting plates---and the extension of the theory to dielectric materials.
