    Balpreet Singh Ahluwalia
    Department of Physics and Technology, University of Tromsø, Tromsø N 9037, Norway
    Opt Express 18:21053-61. 2010
    ..An optical propulsion velocity of up to 
6 µm/s on a waveguide with a width of ~6 µm is reported. Stable optical trapping and propulsion of cells during transverse flow is also reported...

    Pål Løvhaugen
    Department of Physics and Technology, University of Tromsø, 9037 Tromsø, Norway
    Opt Express 21:2964-70. 2013
    ..Alternatively, a waveguide loop with a gap is also investigated, and in this case particles are held in the gap for characterization before they are released...
  4. doi request reprint Surface transport and stable trapping of particles and cells by an optical waveguide loop
    Olav Gaute Hellesø
    Department of Physics and Technology, University of Tromsø, N 9037 Tromsø, Norway
    Lab Chip 12:3436-40. 2012
    ..The waveguides are only 180 nm thick and thus could be integrated with other functions on the chip, e.g. microfluidics or optical detection, to make an on-chip system for single cell analysis and to study the interaction between cells...
