Holographic optical trapping uses forces exerted by computer-generated holograms to organize microscopic materials into three-dimensional structures. In a complementary manner, holographic video microscopy uses real-time recordings of in-line holograms to create time-resolved volumetric images of three-dimensional microstructures. The combination is exceptionally effective for organizing, inspecting and analyzing soft-matter systems.
