Abstract

Light can influence the motion of particles, from the size of a single cell down to a single atom. This has led to the field of optical micromanipulation, where one may guide, trap, and sort objects in this size range. This field has proliferated in the last 30 years and is at the forefront of many studies in the natural sciences.
