Dual-beam optical fiber trapping platform for biophotonics applications

By Tessa M. Piñón


Optical fiber trapping is a technique utilized for manipulating micron-sized dielectric particles such as microspheres and biological cells. In this project we describe the fabrication and particle trapping performance of a compact and inexpensive optical trapping system. We investigate the light force dynamics acting on polystyrene microspheres in such a counter-propagating beam trap--Abstract
