Paper Abstract

A new real non-invasive two-core single fiber optical tweezers is proposed and fabricated by fiber grinding and polishing technology. The yeast cells trapping performance of this special designed truncated cone tip fiber probe is demonstrated and investigated. The distributions of the optical field emerging from the truncated cone fiber tip are simulated by Beam Prop Method. Both axial and transverse trapping forces are calculated by FDTD method. This new optical tweezers can realize truly non-invasive remote trapping and manipulating bio-cells.
