Abstract

We report on large-area manipulation of microdroplets by holographic optical tweezers based on a hybrid diffractive system, in which a static computer-generated hologram and a spatial light modulator (SLM) are used. The hybrid diffractive system is useful to manipulate microdroplets on distant areas with the same manner. Experimental results demonstrated that microdroplets were transported successfully in parallel with approximately equivalent velocities over the entire manipulation area. Fusion of microdroplets was also achieved at a position where the optical pattern generated by the SLM alone did not reach.
