Reference work entry


The interactions between the matter and electromagnetic fields on a sub-wavelength scale are discussed from a microscopic viewpoint. On the basis of the projection operator method, effective interactions between nanometric subsystems, that is, optical near-field interactions mediated by massive virtual photons, are derived from a microscopic multipolar Hamiltonian. It is shown that the major part of the effective interaction exerted is the Yukawa potential.
