Investigate inter molecular forces by trapping a number of particles in different laser beams
Optical trapping and tweezing is a technique that is being used in a range of applications to trap and manipulate microscopic particles and is particularly useful for biological single cell manipulation. The single cell can be held in the beam waist, the point which forms the center of the beam for further analysis such as IR or Raman spectroscopy. By trapping a number of particles in different laser beams inter molecular forces can be investigated.
Utilizing lasers makes this technique possible and Novanta designs its lasers to ensure it offers maximum success for this technique:
