Abstract : We develop a QED approach to find the contribution of the quantum vacuum to the electromagnetic Abraham force. Semi-classical theories predict diverging contributions from the quantum vacuum. We show that the divergencies disappear by Kramers-Bethe mass-renormalization. The finite remainder is compared to the relativistic corrections to the Abraham force. This work generalizes an earlier paper 1, dedicated to the harmonic oscillator, to the hydrogen atom and corrects two subtle errors.

Keywords : electromagnetic Abraham force mass renormalization
