    Abstract

    The cloud of virtual photons of an electron in the frame of non-relativistic quantum electrodynamics la defined by appropriate correlation functions, which correlate local observable of the field and the electron’s position. We show that, if in the definition of correlation function one keeps into account the fluctuations in position of the electron due to its coupling with the vacuum field fluctuations, the spatial structure of the cloud defined in this way can be connected to the Van der Waals forces between the electron and polarizable neutral bodies.
