The forces acting on optically trapped particles are commonly assumed to be conservative. Nonconservative scattering forces induce toroidal currents in overdamped liquid environments, with negligible effects on position fluctuations. However, their impact in the underdamped regime remains unexplored. Here, we study the effect of nonconservative scattering forces on the underdamped nonlinear dynamics of trapped nanoparticles at various air pressures. These forces induce significant low-frequency…

The result is a unifying framework for the emergence of heavy tails in the velocity distribution, relevant for understanding the power-law decay in the electron velocity distribution of space plasma or more generally for explaining non-Maxwellian behavior of driven gases.

Drag forces on nanoparticles in the free-molecule regime: Effect of the particle temperature.

Based on the kinetic theory, the generalized formulas for the drag force on nanoparticles in the free-molecule regime are obtained and it is found that there exists a significant error induced by the assumption of equal temperature between the particle and the surrounding gas.

A model is introduced which reproduces the nonequilibrium effects, and in which the magnitude of additional position fluctuations can be calculated in closed form, and the ratio of additional nonconservative fluctuations to direct thermal fluctuations scales inversely with the square root of trap power.
