Real-time interactive optical micromanipulation of a mixture of high-and low-index particles

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


We demonstrate real-time interactive optical micromanipulation of a colloidal mixture consisting of particles with both lower (nL < n0) and higher (nH > n0) refractive indices than that of the suspending medium (n0). Spherical high- and low-index particles are trapped in the transverse plane by an array of confining optical potentials created by trapping beams with top-hat and annular cross-sectional intensity profiles, respectively. The applied method offers extensive reconfigurability...[Show more]
