Paper Abstract

We present a comprehensive laser tweezers software package, comprising the software components for any laser tweezers system. This includes fast hologram generation software, implemented on a graphics card, thereby allowing 100 hundred independently moving traps at video frame rate. The software also includes comprehensive camera suite and image recognition software for multi-particle tracking and analysis. The software is freely available from the authors and online(
