Abstract

We numerically show that both repulsive and attractive (bipolar) optical forces can be exerted on a dielectric or metallic cylindrical nanoparticle by a totally internal refracted wave. This requires that the particles possesses either a whispering gallery (WG) resonance or a localized surface plasmon (LSP) resonance. We further explore the force spectrum that is governed by competition between the separation-dependent resonant Q factor and the coupling strength of the nanoparticle to the evanescent wave. In spite of a much smaller Q of the LSP as compare to the WG resonances, the metallic particle gains much stronger trapping force.
