Speckle field as a multiple particle trap
We demonstrate that a speckle pattern in the spatially coherent laser field transmitted by a diffuser forms a multitude of three-dimensional bottle-shaped micro-traps. These multiple traps serve as a means for an effective trapping of large number of air-born absorbing particles. Confinement of up to a few thousand particles in air with a single beam has been achieved. The ability to capture light-absorbing particles suspended in gases by optical means opens up rich and diverse practical...[Show more]
