Selective trapping of multiple particles by volume speckle field

Shvedov, Vladlen; Rode, Andrei V; Izdebskaya, Yana; Desyatnikov, Anton S; Kivshar, Yuri; Krolikowski, Wieslaw

Description

We suggest a new approach for selective trapping of light absorbing particles in gases by multiple optical bottle-beam-like traps created by volume speckle field. We demonstrate stable simultaneous confinement of a few thousand micro-particles in air with a single lowpower laser beam. The size distribution of trapped particles exhibits a narrow peak near the average size of an optical speckle. Thus, the speckleformed traps act as a sieve with the holes selecting particles of a similar...[Show more]
