Observation of a single-beam gradient force optical trap for dielectric particles, Opt Lett, 1986, Vol. 11(5), p.288 Spatially filtered 514.5nm, ~100mW, beam incident upon a N.A. 1.25 water-immersion microscope objective traps a 10μm glass sphere (Mie size regime ) with m=1.2; FA is the resulting force due to the refracted photons’ momentum change. The image of the red fluorescence makes the beam geometry visible. 4 Optical trapping The refraction of a typical pair of rays “a” and ”b” of the trapping beam gives the forces “Fa” and “Fb” whose vector sum “F” is always restoring for axial and transverse displacements of the sphere from the trap focus f. Typically, the “spring” constant (trap stiffness) is 0.1pN/nm.This makes the optical tweezing particularly useful for studying biological systems. A. Ashkin, Biophys.

Pi affected by losses on the overfilled aperture and by spherical aberrations Q- trapping efficiency (depends on the geometry of the particle, relative refractive index “m”, wavelength, radial distribution of the beam) Some numbers For a sphere with 2a=5μm, the value of 2πa/λ is 30 for the 514.5nm laser 25 for the 632.8nm laser Pi=1mW; ns=4/3 (water); Qmax=0.3 (immersion objective, glass sphere with m=1.2) Fr,max=1.3pN 7 Light forces in the ray optics regime A single incident ray of power P scattered by a dielectric sphere; PR is the reflected ray; PT2Rn is an infinite set of refracted rays r As before, for one photon the momentum is a p photon h h ns c0 and the photon flux in the incident ray is Ni Pi h ns Pi ns Pi 2 n Fz R cos( 2 ) T R cos( n ) c0 c0 n 0 ns Pi Fy 0 c0 2 n R sin( 2 ) T R sin( n ) n 0 8 F = Fz + iFy nP F s i c0 i 2 2 i 1 Re T e R ei n 0 n ns Pi T 2 [cos(2 2r ) R cos(2 ) 1 R cos(2 ) Q s 2 1 R 2 R cos( 2 r ) c0 (1) Fscat nP e( F ) s i c0 Fgrad ns Pi m( F ) c0 ns Pi T 2 [sin(2 2r ) R sin(2 ) R sin(2 ) Qg 2 1 R 2 R cos(2r ) c0 (2) These sums (1) and (2), as given by Roosen and co-workers (Phys Lett 59A, 1976), are exact. They are independent of particle radius “a”. The scattering and the gradient forces of the highly convergent incident beam are the vector sums of the axial and transversal force contribution of the individual rays of the beam. T (transmitivity) and R (reflectivity) are polarization dependend, thus the trapping forces depend on the beam polarization. Computational modeling uses vector equations. The beam is resolved in an angular distribution of plane waves. Modeling in this regime ignores diffraction effects. 9 Axial forces in ray-optics regime as calculated by Wright and co-workers (Appl. Opt. 33(9), 1994) Vector-summation of the contributions of all the rays with angles from 0 to arcsin(NA/ns) for a Gaussian profile on the objective aperture with a beam waist-to-aperture ratio of 1. Linearly polarized laser of 1.06μm assumed. On the abscise: the location of the sphere center with respect to the beam focus. 0.5μm-radius silica sphere (m=1.09) for different laser spots The best trapping is for the smaller waist and the focus outside the sphere. Silica spheres (m=1.09) with different radii when the minimum beam waist is 0.4μm The best trapping is for the bigger sphere and the focus outside the sphere. 10 Transversal forces in ray-optics regime as calculated by A. Ashkin, ( Biophys. J 61, 1992) An axially-symmetric beam, circularly polarized, fills the aperture of a NA=1.25 water immersion objective (max=70°) and traps a m=1.2, polystyrene, sphere. S’=r/a and Q are dimensionless parameters (a=radius of the sphere; r=distance from the beam axis). Gradient, scattering and total forces as a function of the distance S’ of the trap focus from the origin along the yaxis (transversal). The transverse force is symmetric about the center of y the sphere, O. The gradient force Qs is negative, attractive, while the scattering force Qs is positive, repulsive. The value of the total efficiency, Qt, is the sum of two perpendicular forces. 11 Gaussian profile on the objective aperture Transparent Mie spheres: •Both transversal and axial maximum trapping forces are exerted very close to the edge of the transparent sphere •Trap performances decrease when the laser spot is smaller than the objective aperture •The best trapping is for the smaller waist and bigger particle radius Cells modeled as transparent spheres Reflective Mie particles: 2D trapped with a TEM00 only when the focus is located near their bottom trapped inside the doughnut of a TEM01* beam, or in the dark region for Bessel or array beams 12 Modeling optical tweezing in ray optics (Mie) regime For trap stability, Fgrad >>Fscat the objective lens filled by the incident beam high convergence angle for the trapping beam Usually a Gaussian TEMoo beam is assumed for calculations. But Gaussian beam propagation formula is valid only for paraxial beams (small )! Truncation: τ= Dbeam/ Daper dspot = 2wtrap = K(τ)*λ*f/# dAiry= dzero (τ >2) = 2.44*λ*f/# τ=1: the Gaussian beam is truncated to the (1/e2)-diameter; the spot profile is a hybrid between an Airy and a Gaussian distribution τ<1/2 : untruncated Gaussian beam 13 Wave-optics (Rayleigh) regime 2a Electric dipole-like (small) particle : 1 The dipole moment: p E p F ( p ) E B E 2 t 2 m2 1 3 a Dipole polarizability: n 2 m 2 Fgrad 2 s Fgrad a3 I inc Fscat np c0 Pscat Cscat I inc a 64 I inc Cscat - the scattering cross-section Theory applies for metallic/semiconducting particles as well, if dimension comparable to the skin depth. 14 Our modeling for Gaussian beam propagation uses ray matrices The values for the trap parameters are estimated: the beam is truncated and no more paraxial after passing the microscope objective.

The estimated errors: 0.2s for time and 4μm for distance. Purpose: identifying the range of the manipulation speeds and estimate (within an order of magnitude) the trapping force; a large statistics for each trapped particle has been used. 21 Speeds distributions for uncoated and coated polystyrene spheres and 632.8nm laser; optical manipulation in aqueous solution and in golden colloid 1.16μm PSS in a 0.8mW trap 1.16μm PSS horizontally moved Coated PSS in a 0.8mW trap in two different traps 4.88μm PSS in a 0.8mW trap The polystyrene spheres are manipulated easier if they are •rather smaller than bigger •uncoated than coated •immersed in water than in metallic colloids •at higher trapping power Estimating the trapping force 22 Slow, uniform motion in the fluid.

We attributed this behavior to an optical binding between the particles in the tweezed cluster (redistribution of the optical trapping forces among the microparticles). 31 Future plans: monitoring plant and animal trapped living cells in real time; analyze the changes in their Raman spectra induced by the presence of embedded nanoparticles (a) Near-infrared Raman spectra of single live yeast cells (curve A) and dead yeast cells (curve B) in a batch culture.
