Paper Abstract

Optical tweezers based on cylindrical vector beams are studied theoretically and experimentally. First, we present the basic concept of a cylindrical vector beam (CVB), whose polarization is axially symmetric to the optical axis. Second, two theoretical modes to analyze the interaction between the light beam and the particle are introduced, respectively, and some simulations have been shown. Then, the system structure and its operation principle are introduced in details, where a spatial light modulator (SLM) is used to flexibly generate the CVBs, and experimental results are also demonstrated, which show some advantages for optical manipulation of particles using CVBs.
