Paper Abstract

A novel fiber optical tweezers is proposed to trap subwavelength particles in 3-dimension, the Fresnel Zone Plate (FZP) structure is designed with a high numerical aperture (N.A.) and prepared on the flat fiber end face. According to the core area of 633nm single mode polarization-maintaining fibers, a FZP structure with three zones is designed. The transmitted field distribution is simulated by Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method, and the optical force on a 500 nm diameter polystyrene particle in water is calculated from Maxwell Stress Tensor (MST). The results indicate that the FZP structure can generate a subwavelength focal spot and the optical force can trap subwavelength particle in 3D. With focused ion beam (FIB) etching and depositing system, a fiber optical tweezers with the designed FZP structure is fabricated, which could be used widely due to its easy-operating and capability to manipulate subwavelength particles in 3D.
