Microsphere propulsion along sub-micron optical wires

Murugan, G.S., Brambilla, G., Richardson, D.J. and Wilkinson, J.S. (2007) Microsphere propulsion along sub-micron optical wires At 13th Microoptics Conference (MOC '07). 28 - 31 Oct 2007.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Propagation of light in sub-micron optical fibre wires has been analysed. The large evanescent field has been exploited to propel 10 micron polystyrene spheres and sphere clusters along the sub-micrometric wire with about 0.4W of laser light at 1047nm.
