Abstract

A one-dimensional optically coupled array of colloidal particles is created in a potential well formed by two counterpropagating Gaussian light beams. This array has analogies to linear chains of trapped atomic ions. Breathing modes and oscillations of the center of mass are observed. The stability of the array is in accordance with the Kramers model.
