Optofluidic transport seeks to exploit the high-intensity electromagnetic energy in waveguiding structures to manipulate nanoscopic matter using radiation pressure and optical trapping forces. In this paper, we present an analysis of optical trapping and transport of sub-100 nm polystyrene and gold nanoparticles in silicon slot waveguides. This study focuses on the effect of particle size, particle refractive index, and slot waveguide geometry on trapping stability and the resulting transport… CONTINUE READING
