Paper Abstract

We propose the use of a vision-guided system for the formation and dynamic manipulation of an assembly of microscopic particles. Microscopic particles having visually recognizable characteristics, i.e. shape and color, are arranged and manipulated using patented and recently demonstrated fully dynamic multiple-beam optical trapping for real-time and simultaneous manipulation and control of arrays of particles. A derived application is the simultaneous manipulation of an assembly of particles at the same time as they are observed and identified with microscopic image processing. We will point to novel experiments based on micro-fluidic and lab-on-a-chip technology, where the aim is to attain all-optical and simultaneous control of aggregated micro-structures that can function as channels, reservoirs, sensors and micro-pumps.
