Paper Abstract

The ability to exert optical torques to rotationally manipulate microparticles has developed from an interesting curiosity to seeing deployment in practical applications. Is the next step to genuine optically-driven micromachines feasible or possible? We review the progress made towards this goal, and future prospects.
