When Light Loses Symmetry, It Can Hold Particles

[ad_1] Mode symmetry-broken mechanism for enhancing optical trapping behavior. Credit: Yuanhao LOU, Xiongjie NING, Bei WU, Yuanjie PANG Optical tweezers use light to immobilize microscopic particles as small as a single atom in 3D space. The basic principle behind optical tweezers is the momentum transfer between light and the object being hold. Much analogous to […]
