Real-time three-dimensional optical micromanipulation of multiple particles and living cells

Rodrigo, Peter John; Daria, Vincent Ricardo; Gluckstad, Jesper


Counterpropagating light fields provide a stationary optical potential well for a Brownian particle. Introducing variability in the relative strengths of the counterpropagating beams allows us to create a more general configuration—the optical elevator. An optical elevator dynamically controls the axial location of the potential minimum where the particle finds a stable equilibrium position. We describe the implementation of multiple real-time reconfigurable optical elevators with the...[Show more]
