Eckerskorn, Niko; Bowman, Richard; Kirian, Richard; Awel, Salah; Wiedorn, Max; Kupper, Jochen; Padgett, Miles; Chapman, Henry; Rode, Andrei V


Optical trapping of light-absorbing particles in a gaseous environment is governed by a laser-induced photophoretic force, which can be orders of magnitude stronger than the force of radiation pressure induced by the same light intensity. In spite of many experimental studies, the exact theoretical background underlying the photophoretic force and the prediction of its influence on the particle motion is still in its infancy. Here, we report the results of a quantitative analysis of the...[Show more]
