Paper Abstract

After more than thirty years after Arthur Ashkin's pioneering experiments the optical trapping is a widely established technique of the modern science. Its applications cover wide range of physics, chemistry and biology. In many of these applications the irregular, inhomogeneous or ensembles of many particles are exposed to the light fields where such particles could be stably confined. In this paper we will present results of several numerical methods that describe optical forces acting on particles placed in the non-diffracting Bessel Beam.
