Paper Abstract

The increased application of holographic optical manipulation techniques within the life sciences has sparked the development of accessible interfaces for control of holographic optical tweezers. Of particular interest are those that employ familiar, commercially available technologies. Here we present the use of a low cost games console interface, the Microsoft Kinect for the control of holographic optical tweezers and a study into the effect of using such a system upon the quality of trap generated.
