- Microfluidic sorting in an optical latticeM P MacDonald
School of Physics and Astronomy, University of St Andrews, North Haugh, St Andrews, Fife KY16 9SS, UK
Nature 426:421-4. 2003..This powerful, non-invasive technique is suited to sorting and fractionation within integrated ('lab-on-a-chip') microfluidic systems, and can be applied in colloidal, molecular and biological research...
- Cell cytometry with a light touch: sorting microscopic matter with an optical latticeM P MacDonald
University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Fife, Scotland
J Biol Regul Homeost Agents 18:200-5. 2004..The interference pattern can be tailored to the particles and if a blockage occurs, the laser can simply be switched off, unlike solid-state micro-sorters, so that no jamming occurs. Efficiencies in excess of 95% have been achieved...
- Controlled rotation of optically trapped microscopic particlesL Paterson
School of Physics and Astronomy, St. Andrews University, North Haugh, St. Andrews, Fife KY16 9SS, Scotland
Science 292:912-4. 2001..This technique does not depend on intrinsic properties of the trapped particle and thus offers important applications in optical and biological micromachines...
