Paper Abstract

We propose and demonstrate experimentally an optical analogue of the famous Archimedes' screw where airborne particles are conveyed down or upstream the photons momentum ow through the rotation of a helical optical beam. We also report on the action of such a rotating screw on low-absorbing particles in a solution.
