Paper Abstract

Scattering forces on small particles are proportional to the average value of the Poynting vector and to the curl of the spin angular momentum of the light field. In this paper we analyse the relevance of spin non-conservative forces in configurations where scattering forces are different from zero with a null Poynting vector or with a null average value of the Poynting vector.
