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 beams particularly using holographic optical tweezers technology. Optical landscapes using evanescent waves can hold large arrays of particles (~1000) and may be enhanced using surface plasmon interactions. Dynamics in a static 2D landscape of a Bessel beam can lead to optically induced separation.
