Paper Abstract

Optical micro-manipulation has seen a resurgence of interest in recent years which has been due in part to new application areas and the use of tailored forms of light beams particularly intereference patterns of light. Particle dynamics in 2D and 3D light patterns and the transport properties therein are of interest. As examples, I show the ability to sort and separate biological matter in a three dimensional optical lattice and also dynamics in a Bessel light beam which can be considered as a set of concentric rings created by interference.
