Optical manipulation with counter propagating helical beams

Lisa Dixon, David G. Grier

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


    We present a novel method for using mutiple beams to exert optical forces using holographically generated phase masks. Here we use counter propagating helical modes with opposite charge to manipulate mesoscopic paticles.
