Dynamic axial control over optically levitating particles in air with an electrically-tunable variable-focus lens

Zhu, Wenguo; Eckerskorn, Niko; Upadhya, Avinash; Li, Li; Rode, Andrei V.; Lee, Woei Ming


Efficient delivery of viruses, proteins and biological macromelecules into a micrometer-sized focal spot of an XFEL beam for coherent diffraction imaging inspired new development in touch-free particle injection methods in gaseous and vacuum environments. This paper lays out our ongoing effort in constructing an all-optical particle delivery approach that uses piconewton photophoretic and femtonewton light-pressure forces to control particle delivery into the XFEL beam. We combine a spatial...[Show more]
