Abstract

The Brownian motion of a polystyrene bead trapped in a time-sharing optical tweezers (TSOT) is numerically simulated by adopting Monte-Carlo technique. By analyzing the Brownian motion signal, the effective stiffness of a TSOT is acquired at different switching frequencies. Simulation results confirm that for a specific laser power and duty ratio, the effective stiffness varies with the frequency at low frequency range, while at high frequency range it keeps constant. Our results reveal that the switching frequency can be used to control the stability of time-sharing optical tweezers in a range.
