Paper Abstract

Manipulation of micron-scale silicon particles has been investigated with optical tweezers implemented using a two-dimensional scanning trap driven with acousto-optic modulators. Spheres of latex, Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), silica, and silver-coated PMMA have been utilized to calibrate transverse trapping forces. The goal of this work is to non-invasively manipulate 10-20 μm silicon-based devices in and around cells.
