Shack-Hartmann multiple-beam optical tweezers

Rodrigo, Peter; Eriksen, Rene; Daria, Vincent; Glueckstad, Jesper


We introduce a new method for generating an array of programmable optical tweezers based on the principle of the ShackHartmann wave front sensor. In this approach, a lenslet array divides a laser beam into multiple point sources that are subsequently imaged onto the sample plane of an inverted microscope. This results in a matrix of tightly focused beams used for local confinement and manipulation of micron-sized dielectric particles in an aqueous solution. Using a spatial...[Show more]
