Colloidal statistical mechanics in optical vortices

Yael Roichman, David G. Grier

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    Holographic optical tweezers can be used to create a variety of optical landscapes in which particles can be trapped and driven. We study particles driven by optical vortices in the framework of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics.
