• molecular
  • The authors realised that this approach covers a larger area than focused tweezers and is capable of organising so-called mesoscopic matter-ranging from the nano to the micrometric scale- into a new 3D molecular architecture. (springer.com)
  • One of the sizzling hot topics within nanophotonics is plasmonics, which holds the promise of a class of subwavelength-scale optoelectronic components that could form the building blocks of a chip-based optical device technology that is scaleable to molecular dimensions. (nanotech-now.com)
  • force
  • By using an optical tweezer to apply a prescribed force to a tracer particle, FSM can measure the resulting displacement in order to estimate the elastic spring constant. (wikipedia.org)
  • micromanipulation
  • In this paper, for the first time, we report on systematic theoretical and experimental investigation of Phase Contrast Optical Tweezers (PCOT) which could be an indispensable tool for micromanipulation of the transparent micro and nano objects such as biological tissues and vesicles. (osapublishing.org)
  • Closed loop control will enable new applications of optical micromanipulation in biology, medicine, materials science, and possibly quantum computation. (osapublishing.org)
  • measure
  • Biaggio measure the mechanical properties of cells using nonlinear optical effects, which generate ultrasound waves to measure mechanical properties. (innovations-report.com)
  • Optical tweezers have also been used to probe the cytoskeleton, measure the visco-elastic properties of biopolymers, and study cell motility. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanical
  • A particular host material is chosen in order to obtain a desired combination of optical, mechanical, and thermal properties. (wikipedia.org)
  • Optics
  • For her achievements in the fields of optics and photonics, Ritsch-Marte was elected OSA Fellow in 2013 by the Optical Society of America. (wikipedia.org)
