Abstract

Evanescent electromagnetic fields near a waveguide can exert a transverse radiation force on scattering objects. To prove this experimentally, we demonstrate light-induced orbiting of isotropic, dielectric microparticles around an optical nanofiber that guides elliptically polarized, fundamental modes. The orbit frequency is proportional to the helicity of the coupled light. Interestingly, the observed motion is opposite to the energy flow circulation around the fiber. This result verifies the theoretically predicted negative optical torque on a sufficiently large particle in the vicinity of a nanofiber.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. (a) Isotropic, dielectric particle in the evanescent field of an elliptically polarized, fundamental mode of an optical nanofiber. Due to the azimuthal optical force, $ {F_\varphi } $, the particle can rotate around the fiber. (b) We eliminate axial motion by using two counterpropagating beams with identical intensity profiles and opposite helicities, $ {\sigma _1} = - {\sigma _2} $.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. Simulation results. (a) Density of the total angular momentum of light near a nanofiber (in water) guiding a fundamental mode with $ \sigma = 1 $. Inset: total angular momentum per photon and its orbital and spin components. (b) Orbiting frequency for a polystyrene particle, as a function of radii of the particle and the fiber. Inset: frequency at the optimum fiber radius ($ {R_{\rm f}} = 0.35\;{\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}} $) for three different particle materials: silicon, polystyrene, and silica.
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. (a) Experimental setup (not to scale): once the polarization transformations in the tapered fiber are reversed by the polarization compensators, PC1 and PC2, we set the values of $ {\sigma _1} $ and $ {\sigma _2} = - {\sigma _1} $, by rotating the quarter-wave plates, QWP1 and QWP2. (b) Transmission image of a 3-µm polystyrene particle optically captured at the waist of a nanofiber.
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. Experimental results for a CP input (${\rm R} = {\rm right}$, ${\rm L} = {\rm left}$). (a) Beatings in the detector signal acquired with an optical power of 15 mW in each beam. The zoomed-in view (inset) shows the local period, T. (b) Orbiting frequency versus power in each beam, at $ \sigma = + 1 $. Markers: measured data sets for three samples; gray area: combined standard deviation range. Dashed line: frequency expected for the drag coefficient $ \gamma $; solid line: the best fit to the data with $ {\gamma _{{\rm fit}}} $. (c), (d) Time-lapse compilation of images for $ \sigma = + 1 $ (c) and $ \sigma = - 1 $ (d).
Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. Experimental results for an EP input and 15-mW power in each beam. (a), (b) Markers: measured orbiting frequency versus QWP1 orientation (a) or the $ {\textbf k} $-projection of SAM in beam 1 (b). Solid lines: simulation using Eq. (3), with $ \sigma = \sin 2\theta $.
