Heat-mediated optical manipulation

Abstract

Heat-mediated optical manipulation exploits tailorable opto-thermo-matter interactions and rich mass transport dynamics to enable versatile control of matter of various compositions, shapes, and sizes. I present our progress in developing and applying a series of heat-mediated optical manipulation techniques, which range from opto-refrigerative tweezers to opto-thermoelectric tweezers and machines.
