    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The structure of optical vortices created with the dynamic holographic optical tweezer technique was studied via measurements. Their ability to exert torques on trapped materials was examined. The measurements revealed qualitative discrepancies with predicted behavior.
