Abstract

The vector Gaussian beam with high-order corrections is used to describe accurately the laser beam up to numerical aperture NA=1.20 in the optical tweezers for trapping nanoparticles. The beam is then expanded in the T-matrix method into the vector spherical wave function (VSWF) series using the point matching method with a new selection of the matching points. The errors in the beam description and in the VSWF expansion are much lower than those that occur in the paraxial Gaussian beam model.
