Harnessing structured light for advanced optical trapping
Since the Nobel award for optical tweezers in 2018, the paramount potential of optical trapping of micro- and nanoparticles has become obvious. Nowadays, structured light fields, customized in its amplitude, phase or polarization, containing singularities or being tightly focused, open various new perspectives for optical trapping. Within this talk, different methods of structuring light in all its degrees of freedom will be outlined and its potential for next-generation optical trapping will be discussed . Also, I will show applications of optical tweezers including assembly of nano-containers, manipulation of self-propelled microobjects as well as cell and organ inspection.
