  • Contact-free trapping and manipulation of light absorbing micrometerand nanometer-scale particles in air and in vacuum utilises radiation pressure, which results from momentum transfer from photons, and a pressuredependent thermal force, caused by momentum transfer from gas molecules to the con ned particles. Both forces are linearly proportional to the illuminating laser intensity, and both push the particles towards regions of lower intensity. While the radiation pressure of light was… CONTINUE READING
