    ..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...

    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...

    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...
