Pulsed lasers are used for simultaneous single-beam three-dimensional optical trapping of and second-harmonic generation in 50-100-nm nonlinear particles. The emission power of the frequency-doubled light, the trapping stability, and the particle degradation are investigated for KTP and LiNbO(3) particles trapped by 25-kHz-repetition-rate Q-switched Nd:YAG and 76-MHz mode-locked Ti:sapphire l a s e r s . Typically 1 pW-10 nW of frequency-doubled light is detected from stably trapped particles… CONTINUE READING
