Video for optical aligning and guiding. Authors experimentally demonstrate optical rotation and manipulation of microscopic particles by use of optical vortex beams with fractional topological charges, namely fractional optical vortex beams, which are coupled in an optical tweezers system. [See Tao et al. Fig. 6(a) for details.]
