Abstract

In this comment, problems associated with an oversimplified FDTD based model used for trapping force calculation in recent papers “Computation of the optical trapping force using an FDTD based technique” [Opt. Express 13, 3707 (2005)], and “Rigorous time domain simulation of momentum transfer between light and microscopic particles in optical trapping” [Opt. Express 12, 2220 (2004)] are discussed. A more rigorous model using in Poynting vector is also presented.
