In this paper, we explore the propagation of light through disordered material and ask whether we can create an optimal focus in such a scenario. We use the complex modulation of the input light (i.e. modulation in both phase and amplitude) for these studies, implemented by use a spatial light modulator (SLM) and show trapping and manipulation through a static turbid medium. We then extend the system to create a tandem SLM system with an acousto-optic deflector. This has further advantages as we can now not only project light fields into turbid media but can also create interference-free mode superpositions of light fields such as Laguerre-Gaussian (LG) and Bessel modes. This is illustrated by controlled rotation of trapped particles in weighted, interference-free superpositions of LG beams of opposite order but equal magnitude.
