Abstract

We firstly demonstrate the three-dimensional (3D) measurement of a nanometer-sized sphere held in optical tweezers in water using an in-line digital holographic microscope with a green light emitting diode. Suppressing the movement with optical tweezers enabled us to detect the three-dimensional position of a polystyrene sphere with a diameter of 200 nm . The positioning resolutions of the microscope were 3.2 nm in the transverse direction and 3.4 nm in the axial direction, from the standard deviation of measurements of the 200 nm sphere fixed on glass. Changes in the Brownian motion in response to a change in the trapping laser power were measured. We also demonstrated that this holographic measurement is an effective method for determining the threshold power of the optical trapping.
