Paper Abstract

An optical actuator has some interesting characteristics, such as no generation of magnetic noise and receiving the energy remotely. A novel micromanipulator by photothermal effect is proposed. It consists of three optical fiber cantilevers. One end of the fiber is cut for a bevel and painted with black color. A photothermal effect is occurred responding to the incident beam at the end of the optical fiber. It can manipulate a sample and move it in the arbitrary place in 3D space. We succeed to fabricate the 3D structures.
