Stability of Dual-Beam Fiber-Optical Traps for Low Refractive Index Contrast Particles

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We experimentally and numerically characterize stable and unstable μm-particle trapping in a dual-beam fiber-optical trap. We find that reducing the fiber separation leads to increasing restoring forces when the ratio of refractive indices approaches 1.005.
