Abstract

Nonspherical probe particles are an attractive choice for optically-trapped scanning probe microscopy. We show that it is possible to calibrate a trap with a nonspherical particle using only position measurements, without requiring measurement of orientation, using a pseudopotential based on the position occupation probability. It is not necessary to assume the force is linear with displacement.
