If two parallel uncharged conductive plates placed close to each other in order micro-meters distance in a vacuum, it would appear an attractive interaction between these two plates. This interaction is theoretically explained by the difference between the vacuum energy outside the plates and the vacuum energy inside the plates. This effect is known as the "Casimir effect" by the name of theoretical physicist Hendrik Casimir, who first predicted the existence of this force. The Casimir’s effect has been proved experimentally several times. In this paper, initially is given a historical context in which the theory of Casimir’s effect was developed and a chronology of attempts to prove this effect experimentally. Then is calculated mathematically Casimir’s force according to the procedure followed by Casimir. There is given also a short treatment of the impact of the geometric configuration on the Casimir’s effect, and at the very bottom briefly are given several possible applications of the Casimir’s effect on technology (especially in nanotechnology), theoretical physics, mathematics, etc.
