Calculation of optical trapping forces for micrometer-sized particles with a complex refractive index

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Many experiments and force calculations1,2 relating to optical trapping for transparent particles have been carried out. Recently, optical trappings of micrometer-sized iron particles with a scanning laser beam3 and of nanometer-sized gold particles4 have been reported. We have also demonstrated optical trapping of micrometer-sized metal particles with a fixed laser beam.5 However, metal particles have a complex refractive index, and force calculations for these absorptive particles have, to our knowledge, not yet been reported.
