Longitudinal optical binding of high optical contrast microdroplets in air.

Abstract

Binding along the beam axis (which we shall call "longitudinal optical binding") has been observed between micron-sized oil droplets in a three dimensional optical trap in air. We argue that it is the high optical contrast which is responsible for the exceptionally stable doublet structures observed experimentally. It was also observed that optically bound… (More)
