Abstract

Trapping and manipulation of particles using laser beams has become an important tool in diverse fields of research. In recent years, particular interest has been devoted to the problem of conveying optically trapped particles over extended distances either downstream or upstream of the direction of photon momentum flow. Here, we propose and experimentally demonstrate an optical analog of the famous Archimedes’ screw where the rotation of a helical-intensity beam is transferred to the axial motion of optically trapped micrometer-scale, airborne, carbon-based particles. With this optical screw, particles were easily conveyed with controlled velocity and direction, upstream or downstream of the optical flow, over a distance of half a centimeter. Our results offer a very simple optical conveyor that could be adapted to a wide range of optical trapping scenarios.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Experimental setup. A collimated laser light reflects off a SLM, is scaled down using a telescope, and finally focused into a cuvette filled with airborne absorbing particles. A camera records the motion of the trapped particles.

Fig. 2. Optical Archimedes’ screw. (a) The Fourier domain mask that was applied to the phase-only SLM. (b) Calculation of beam profile in the focal plane at the middle of the cuvette. The arrows indicate dark volumes in which particles were observed to be trapped. (c) Beam profile captured on a camera, using a lens of a longer focal length than used for trapping, and scale-adjusted for the lens used for trapping. (d) Calculation of beam profile at several locations along the propagation length. (e) Simulation of several iso-intensity surfaces of the beam around the focal plane. (f) Simulations, for several rotation angles ϕ of the optical screw, of a plane cut [as shown in (e)] of the beam parallel to the optical axis and displaced transversely to the point indicated by one of the arrows on panel (b) above. The dashed white circles denote a possible trap location for the particle. The white arrows are a guide to the eye.
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. Screw-velocity-matched particle axial motion. In all cases, the optical screw is periodically switching its rotation direction after N rotations and its axial phase velocity is vp. (a) N=0.5, vp=0.08  mm/s. (b) N=0.5, vp=0.04  mm/s. (c) N=0.75, vp=0.08  mm/s. (d) N=0.75, vp=0.04  mm/s. Two particles were trapped together in cases (a) and (b). The coordinate z = 0 marks the focal plane of the beam.
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. Camera snapshots during the oscillatory movement of two particles trapped together in a rotating optical screw. During the interval that the snapshots were taken, the optical screw is first rotating to move the particles upstream (left) and then downstream (right). The phase velocity of the optical screw is vp=0.08  mm/s. The two particles are trapped at an average distance of 2 mm from each other. The focal plane is marked with a vertical (purple) line on the right-hand side of each image. t0 was set to a moment just after a change of direction of particle movement. Δt=10  s.
Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. Non velocity-matched periodic particle axial motion. (a) The optical screw is constantly rotating to deliver particles downstream at a phase velocity of vp=0.08  mm/s and a pitch of 4.1 mm. (b) Downstream, vp=0.03  mm/s, pitch 4.1 mm. (c) Upstream, vp=0.08  mm/s, pitch 4.1 mm. (d) The direction of optical screw rotation is switched every half a turn (every pitch cycle); vp=0.23  mm/s, pitch 11.3 mm. The coordinate z = 0 marks the focal plane of the beam.
