  1. doi Particle tracking stereomicroscopy in optical tweezers: control of trap shape

    Department of Physics and Astronomy, SUPA, University of Glasgow, G12 8QQ, UK
    Opt Express 18:11785-90. 2010
    ..Beams which concentrate their optical power at the extremes of the back aperture give rise to much more efficient axial trapping. The flexibility of using an SLM allows us to create multiple traps with different shapes...
  2. doi Position clamping in a holographic counterpropagating optical trap
    Richard Bowman
    Department of Physics and Astronomy, SUPA, University of Glasgow, G12 8QQ, UK
    Opt Express 19:9908-14. 2011
    ..This approach can be trivially extended to multiple particles, and we show three simultaneously position-clamped beads...
  3. doi Holographic aberration correction: optimising the stiffness of an optical trap deep in the sample
    Maria Dienerowitz
    SUPA, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ, UK
    Opt Express 19:24589-95. 2011
    ..This optimisation increases the trap stiffness by up to a factor of 3 and allows trapping of 1 μm polystyrene beads up to 50 μm deep in the sample...
  4. doi Increasing trap stiffness with position clamping in holographic optical tweezers
    Daryl Preece
    Department of Physics and Astronomy, SUPA, University of Glasgow, G12 8QQ, UK
    Opt Express 17:22718-25. 2009
    ..This reduction relies on the generation of holograms at high speed. We present software capable of calculating holograms in under 1ms using a graphics processor unit...
  5. pmc Independent polarisation control of multiple optical traps
    Daryl Preece
    Department of Physics and Astronomy, Kelvin Building, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ, United Kingdom
    Opt Express 16:15897-902. 2008
    ..We demonstrate the functionality of the system by controlling the rotation and orientation of birefringent vaterite crystals within holographic optical tweezers...
  6. doi Real time characterization of hydrodynamics in optically trapped networks of micro-particles
    Arran Curran
    Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
    J Biophotonics 3:244-51. 2010
    ..Finally, we demonstrate the potential of using our micro-ring as a non-invasive sensor to the local environmental viscosity, by showing the distortion of the eigenmode spectrum due to the proximity of a planar boundary...
