Optical vortex beams for trapping and transport of particles in air

Shvedov, Vladlen; Desyatnikov, Anton S; Rode, Andrei V; Izdebskaya, Yana; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Kivshar, Yuri


In this paper we show that laser beams containing phase singularity can be used for trapping and guiding light-absorbing particles in air. The experiments were performed with agglomerates of carbon nanoparticles with the size in the range 0.1-10 ìm; the
