Abstract

The optical trapping properties of dual-component spheres consisting of a cocentered outer transparent dielectric spherical shell and internal solid sphere are examined on the basis of the enhanced ray optics model. It is shown that stable trapping can occur on axis, off axis, or at multiple axial positions and depends on the dual-sphere and laser beam parameters. Computation results are also presented for an internal reflecting sphere surrounded by an outer dielectric spherical shell.
