Has anyone to your knowledge, ever detected, or perhaps just tried to detect, a Casimir effect between the plate (with the slits) and the screen behind in the double slit experiment?

    $\begingroup$ The distances involved between the slits and detection screen (if you want to observe any interference fringes) likely preclude casimir effects being observable. $\endgroup$ – JPattarini Dec 3 '18 at 14:19
