A method and mathematical foundation are presented for generating multiple-beam optical tweezers capable of introducing complex trapping beam configurations that enable optical manipulation for a variety of colloidal structures. The method is based on the generalized phase contrast technique for generating high intensity beam patterns from an input phase modulation encoded on a spatial light modulator. The mathematical foundation describes issues concerning how the method provides high photon...[Show more]
