Paper Abstract

To exploit the angular momentum degree of freedom of the light to control the mechanical effects that results from its linear momentum is an intriguing challenge that may open several new routes towards enhanced optical trapping, manipulation and sorting of microscopic entities. This issue can be addressed by exploiting the interplay between the chirality of matter and the chirality of optical fields. Here we will report on our recent progresses on helicity-dependent optomechanics of chiral microparticles.
