Abstract

We demonstrate that a nonvanishing interaction force exists between pairs of induced dipoles in a random, statistically stationary electromagnetic field. This new type of optical binding force leads to long-range interaction between dipolar particles even when placed in spatially incoherent fields. We also discuss several unique features of the dipole–dipole interaction in spatially incoherent Gaussian fields.
