Abstract

We demonstrate the possibility of serially guiding and sorting nanometer-sized particles without the use of any external control. The working principle is based on an equilibrium between scattering and binding forces, the latter depending on the properties of the particles. A configuration is proposed that utilizes this property and is shown to efficiently sort small particles as function of their size.
