Paper Abstract

Aerosol droplets are guided over mm distances using single beam optical traps. The micron-sized particles are confined in two dimensions and guided along the direction of beam propagation. Both Gaussian and Bessel beam geometries are compared for water, ethanol and dodecane droplets. The observed trapping of multiple droplets in 1-D arrays will also be discussed.
