We present a direct nanotube-microsphere tagging technique for the controlled three-dimensional
3D manipulation and transportation of vanadium oxide nanotubes VOx-NTs with optical
tweezers. The high scattering and absorptive nature of the VOx-NTs preclude the 3D optical
trapping of such nanostructures. VOx-NTs are adhered to 3-aminopropyl-triethoxysilane
functionalized silica microspheres, which act as handles for indirectly manipulating and transporting
the nanotubes in three dimensions...[Show more]
