Abstract

We combine a radiation-pressure-based levitation system with a dual fiber, laser trapping system to demonstrate the potential of delivering single particles into the fiber trap. The forces versus position and the trajectory of the particle subjected to the laser beams are examined with an enhanced ray optics model. A sequence of video images taken from the experimental apparatus demonstrates the principle of particle delivery, trapping, and further manipulation.
