Paper Abstract

The paper describes the design of an inexpensive holographic optical tweezers setup. The setup is accompanied by software that allows real-time manipulation of the sample and takes into account the experimental features of the setup, such as aberration correction and LCD modulation. The LCD, a HoloEye LCR-2500, is the physical support of the holograms, which are calculated using the fast random binary mask algorithm. The real-time software achieves 12 fps at full LCD resolution (including aberration correction and modulation) when run on a Pentium IV HT, 3.2 GHz computer.
