Casimir Effect Outside a Lab Answered

Does anybody know how to go about recreating the Casimir effect outside a lab?

Say I have a vacuum chamber and two copper plates. I want to create the Casimir effect within the vacuum chamber, Only problem is that to do so, from my understanding, I'd have to have the copper plates within nanometers of each other, I've heard of methods using oscillating crystals...can anyone help me?

The plates aren't, they are long-ROC spheres, otherwise its impossible to bring them together with the required, nanometric precision to observe the effect.
