Paper Abstract

We report the rise in temperature in various liquid media adjacent to a trapped bead. A nonheating laser at 780 nm has been used to optically trap a 500-nm radius polystyrene bead, while a simultaneous irradiation with a copropagating 1560-nm high-repetition-rate femtosecond laser led to temperature rise in various trapping media. Vibrational combination band of the hydroxyl group in the trapping media resulted in high absorption of 1560-nm laser. This, in turn, gave us control over the trapping media temperature at the focus of the optical trap.
