Optical Force and Torque on a Graphene-Coated Gold Nanosphere by a Vector Bessel Beam

In the framework of the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory (GLMT), the optical force and torque on a graphene-coated gold nanosphere by a vector Bessel beam are investigated. The core of the particle is

Optical torque exerted on a homogeneous sphere levitated in the circularly polarized fundamental-mode laser beam

An expression for a circularly polarized Gaussian laser beam is obtained from the electromagnetic vector potential A, of which the scalar part becomes the complex-source-point spherical wave. Based

Radiation torque produced by an arbitrary acoustic wave

Acoustic waves may force a suspended object in the wavepath to spin by exerting a radiation torque. Generally, this torque depends on how the incident wave is scattered and absorbed by the object. We
