Research Highlight: That Vacuum Is Really Something!
One effort of Prof. Milton and his research group is to understand the nature of the quantum vacuum, which is important in explaining dark energy as well having applications to nanotechnology. The images of cylindrical wedges may be relevant to understanding the quantum nature of cosmic strings, while the corrugated surfaces represent an idea for building nano-gears, in which the mechanical bodies never touch each other, but in which forces and torques are transmitted by quantum vacuum energy.
