Temperature Dependence of Atom-Atom Interactions

Wells, A; Daicic, John; Ninham, Barry


The interaction potential at finite temperature between two atoms in the asymptotic limit of large separations, R≫ℏc/kBT, is V(R)=-3kBTα2(0)/R6, identical to the expression for two classical polarizable particles. This is in contrast to the zero-temp
