  1. Optical Tweezers for Biological Manipulation using Cylindrical Vector Beams By Yen Chin Woo Advisor Professor James Leger Spring 2004

  2. Summary • Introduction to optical tweezers • Development of individual systems • White light Imaging • Laser construction • Development of the whole system • Backlight Imaging • Combination of Nd:YAG laser and backlight • Budget Optical Tweezers for Biological manipulation using Cylindrical Vector Beams

  3. What are Optical Tweezers? • Tool for manipulating microscopic biological objects, such as cells and bacteria. • For focused light beam, the intensity maximum occurs at the focus, so the particles will be attracted to the focus. • Many areas of applications: • Biology • Genetics • Neuroscience • Molecular Medicine • Pharmacy • Biotechnology • Reproductive Medicine Fig 1.

  4. New Design of Optical Tweezers • Systems: • White light Imaging • Nd:YAG laser • Laser/white light optical system • Polarization system • Tweezers can trap and hold small particles with different refractive indices by changing the beam shape Fig 2.
