Finite-size-dependent dispersion potentials between atoms and ions dissolved in water

Thiyam, P.; Boström, Mathias; Persson, Clas; Parsons, Drew; Brevik, Iver; Sernelius, B


A non-expanded theory is used for dispersion potentials between atoms and ions dissolved in a medium. The first-order dispersion interaction between two atoms in an excited state must account for the fact that the two atoms are coupled via the electromagnetic field and must include effects from background media, retardation and finite size. We show that finite-size corrections when two particles are close change the dispersion interactions in water by several orders of magnitude. We consider as...[Show more]
