The influence of surface irregularities upon the Van der Waals forces between macroscopic bodies

By J.L.M.J. van Bree, J.A. Poulis, B.J. Verhaar and K. Schram


An expression is derived for the Van der Waals force between two semi-infinite bodies with small surface irregularities. Calculations are given both for the plane-plane and the plane-sphere configuration. The value of the correction from the surface irregularities upon the Van der Waals force is shown to amount easily to 10–50%
