Casimir Force Measurements

Caption: The experimental data, noted by the red and blue lines, show a clear departure from normalized pressure ratings in a typical Casimir force measurement. The observed fluctuations on the experimental data originate from the rolling average. The effect of points far from the mean is extended over the bin where the average is performed. Inset: characteristic results for samples made by sputtering of Au onto hydrogen silesquioxane structures.
