Engineering expressions are developed for experimental investigations involving coupling between electromagnetism and gravity. It is shown that an accelerated reference frame may be derived from a superposition of applied electromagnetic (EM) fields and may be characterized by the magnitude of the Poynting vectors. Based on dimensional similarity and the equivalence principle, the engineered acceleration may be used to modify the gravitational acceleration g at the surface of Earth. An engineered change in the value of the refractive index corresponds to an incremental change in the gravitational potential energy. The magnitude of this change and the similarity between an experimental prototype (EP) and the local gravitational environment may then be characterized by a critical ratio KR such that the gravitational acceleration is reduced to zero within a bench-top test volume, when KR = 1. An engineered refractive index equation is derived that may be used for EM metric engineering purposes. A hypothetical "engineered" polarizable vacuum metric line element is then presented as an example.

    In this work we apply field regularization techniques to formulate a number of new phenomena related to momentum induced by electromagnetic zero-point fluctuations. We discuss the zero-point momentum associated with magneto-electric media, with moving media, and with magneto-chiral media.

    If our Universe is a 3+1 brane in a warped 4+1 dimensional bulk so that its expansion can be understood as the motion of the brane in the bulk, the time dependence of the boundary conditions for arbitrary bulk fields can lead to particle creation via the dynamical Casimir effect.
