  author={Pei-Yu Chiou and Wilson Wong and James C. Liao and Ming C. Wu},
We present novel optoelectronic tweezers (OET) that are capable of trapping and transporting multiple biological cells. This is based on a new mechanism called light induced dielectrophoresis proposed by our group [1]. OET allows a focused optical beam to create a virtual electrode on a photoconductive surface, producing a highly non-uniform electric field… CONTINUE READING
