Paper Abstract

We report on the first experimental demonstration of resonant optical trapping of dielectric particles in a two-dimensional hollow photonic crystal cavity. The cavities are implemented in an optofluidic chip consisting of a silicon-on-insulator substrate and an ultrathin microfluidic membrane, Resonant optical trapping of 500 nm polystyrene beads is achieved using less than 120 μW optical power in the cavity for trapping times reaching over ten minutes.
