Paper Abstract

We use holographic optical tweezers to trap multiple micron-sized objects and manipulate them in 3-dimensions. Trapping multiple objects allow us to create 3-dimensional structures, examples of which include; simple cubes which can be rotated or scaled, complex crystal structures like the diamond lattice or interactive 3-dimensional control of trapped particles anywhere in the sample volume.
