In accordance with the experimentally proved work of Casimir [6] and the proponents of the stochastic electrodynamics [7], the ZPF is a homogeneous and isotropic distribution of electromagnetic plane waves pervading all space; each one carrying energy proportional to its frequency (ranging from zero to infinite, or a big cutoff value), [?
