A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This important volume contains selected papers and extensive commentaries on laser trapping and manipulation of neutral particles using radiation pressure forces. Such techniques apply to a variety of small particles, such as atoms, molecules, macroscopic dielectric particles, living cells, and organelles within cells. These optical methods have had a revolutionary impact on the fields of atomic and molecular physics, biophysics, and many aspects of nanotechnology.In atomic physics, the trapping and cooling of atoms down to nanokelvins and even picokelvin temperatures are possible. These are the lowest temperatures in the universe. This made possible the first demonstration of Bose-Einstein condensation of atomic and molecular vapors. Some of the applications are high precision atomic clocks, gyroscopes, the measurement of gravity, cryptology, atomic computers, cavity quantum electrodynamics and coherent atom lasers.A major application in biophysics is the study of the mechanical properties of the many types of motor molecules, mechanoenzymes, and other macromolecules responsible for the motion of organelles within cells and the locomotion of entire cells. Unique in vitro and in vivo assays study the driving forces, stepping motion, kinetics, and efficiency of these motors as they move along the cell s cytoskeleton. Positional and temporal resolutions have been achieved, making possible the study of RNA and DNA polymerases, as they undergo their various copying, backtracking, and error correcting functions on a single base pair basis.Many applications in nanotechnology involve particle and cell sorting, particle rotation, microfabrication of simple machines, microfluidics, and other micrometer devices. The number of applications continues to grow at a rapid rate.The author is the discoverer of optical trapping and optical tweezers. With his colleagues, he first demonstrated optical levitation, the trapping of atoms, and tweezer trapping and manipulation of living cells and biological particles.This is the only review volume covering the many fields of optical trapping and manipulation. The intention is to provide a selective guide to the literature and to teach how optical traps really work. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9789810240578

Synopsis :

This important volume contains selected papers and commentaries on laser trapping and manipulation of neutral particles using radiation pressure forces. These revolutionary optical techniques apply to atoms, molecules, dielectric particles, living cells and organelles within cells. They have made possible the cooling of atoms to the lowest temperature in the universe, the first demonstration of Bose-Einstein condensation of atomic vapors, the measurement of the driving forces of individual molecular motors, and the observation of their stepping motion. Only simple geometrical optics and semiclassical physics are used to explain the light forces and traps.The author is the discoverer of optical trapping and optical tweezers. With his colleagues he first demonstrated optical levitation, trapping of atoms, and tweezer trapping and manipulation of living cells and biological particles.This is the only review covering the entire scope of optical manipulation. The intention is to provide a selective guide to the literature and teach how optical traps really work.
