Resolving interparticle position and optical forces along the axial direction using optical coherence gating
In this paper, we demonstrate the use of coherence gating to resolve particle positions and forces in the axial direction. Through coherence gating, particle displacements and interparticle separations can be resolved with a high signal-to-noise ratio. We achieved both high depth resolvability 10−6m and weak optical force 10−15 N measurements in an optical trapping system using a low coherence interferometry system. Trap stiffness as low as 1.46 fN m−1 was measured. This technique is...[Show more]
