Abstract

We demonstrate optical trapping and manipulation of aerosols with an optical bottle beam generated by the moiré techniques. We observe stable trapping and back-and-forth transportation of a variety of absorbing carbon particles suspended in air, ranging from clusters of nanosized buckminsterfullerene C 60 to micrometer-sized carbon powders.
