Paper Abstract

Optical micro-manipulation has seen a resurgence of interest in recent years which has been due in part to new application areas and the use of tailored forms of light beam. We look at the use of Laguerre-Gaussian and Bessel light beams in this paper and also at the creation of optically bound matter using counter-propagating Gaussian beams.
