Transverse optical forces for manipulating nanoparticles
We study optical forces acting on a subwavelength particle with anisotropic polarizability and discover an optomechanical effect that resembles the Hall effect for electrons. While in the classical Hall effect the transverse Lorentz force and the transverse voltage appear due to the static magnetic field which induces the nondiagonal components of the electric conductivity tensor; in our case the imaginary parts of the nondiagonal elements of the polarizability tensor are responsible for the...[Show more]
