- Friction incorporates a close connection between classical mechanics and irreversible thermodynamics. The translation to a quantum mechanical foundation is not trivial and needs a generalization of the Lagrangian. A change to electromagnetic circuits appears to more adequate, since the electric analogue (Ohm’s law) is related to scatter of electrons at lattice vibrations. Important applications of quantized circuits with damping are electronic transitions of molecules (example: H3PO4), the emission of radiation by forced oscillators such as the design of a klystron and modeling of 'bremsstrahlung' created in a tungsten target or via synchrotron.
