The use of optical tweezers and spin angular momentum transfer to birefringent particles allows new nano-scale mechanical measurements in systems where torque and rotation are relevant parameters. There is a growing interest in developing simple, fast and inexpensive protocols to produce a large number of sub-micron scale cylinders of quartz, a positive(More)
Expanding the capabilities of optical traps with angular control of the trapped particle has numerous potential applications in all fields where standard linear optical tweezers are employed. Here we describe in detail the construction, alignment, and calibration of the Optical Torque Wrench, a mode of function that can be added to linear optical tweezers(More)
