Optical Forces Near Microfabricated Devices
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LOS ANGELES
Pagination or Media Count:
The PhD thesis theoretically proposes the idea of light-assisted, templated self assembly and describes its experimental demonstration. It is numerically demonstrated that trapped gold nanoparticles near a photonic-crystal microcavity form secondary traps for dielectric particles, allowing the formation of multi-particle clusters. Experiments on giant unilamellar vesicles in dual-beam optical traps are also described.
