In this paper, the attractive and repulsive optical forces in the truncated V-shaped 77◦ plasmonic gold waveguide have been investigated. By changing the coating layers material and consequently the amount of trapped light energy in bottom of the waveguide, the applied optical forces on metal and plasmonic nanoparticles has been obtained with using the Maxwell stress tensor method. Our results show that by using a coating layer of suitable material, the optical forces increase compared to the… CONTINUE READING
