Holographic optical tweezers: New tools for micron- and nano-sized object manipulation and applications


Sala de grados, Facultad de Ciencias Físicas 

In this seminar we review the current state of the art of holographic optical tweezers. In particular, it is focused in the holographic generation of attractive and useful laser beams able to manipulate the trapped particles in 3D. It is achieved by proper design of their 3D intensity and orbital angular momentum distribution, which is capable to exert controlled torque and rotation over the trapped particles. Relevant experimental works in such a research field are presented as well.

Seminar presented by José A. Rodrigo from Faculty of Physics, Optics Department, Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
