Paper Abstract

Optical trapping techniques are widely used for micromanipulation of biological molecules and cells. Advanced design of optical traps including focused Gaussian, Bessel beams are described depending upon optical trap function and possible applications. The basic theory of harmonic potential well is developed for a full description of particle dynamics. It is shown that stochastic resonance phenomena are also involved in essential of diffusion dynamics of Brownian particle in tailored potentials.
