An in situ separation system, cross-type optical chromatography, is developed theoretically, and an analytic solution of the retention distance is derived. Particle trajectories in the cross-type optical chromatography are calculated for various sizes and materials of the particles and for flow velocities. Further, cross-type optical chromatography assisted by a particle beam generation system is designed.
