# Casimir effect: threshhold distance?

Gold Member

## Main Question or Discussion Point

In the Casimir effect, there is a distance d between the plates where the effect is observable. Is this a threshhold effect, so that for any non-zero distance $\delta$, the effect is not observable at d+$\delta$, or does this effect taper off? What does this depend on?
