The Casimir force between two dissimilar metals was measured. A microelectromechanical torsional oscillator (MTO) was used for the measurement, which improved the precision by ∼ 100 over previous experiments. Few discrepancies in measurement were attributed to a lack of complete characterization of the optical properties of the samples. The method also allowed for a direct experimental test of the proximity force theorem.
