Laser manipulation of microparticles and atoms
Prof. Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop
Centre for Biophotonics and Laser Science, School of Physical Sciences, The University of Queensland
3.30pm, Friday 1 November 2002, Seminar Room (AR103), Graduate Research Centre, Swinburne
Optical forces can be used to trap small particles ranging from micron size to individual atoms. Two
diverse examples will be considered in this talk: the rotation of microscopic particles using optical angular momentum and the
process of dynamical tunnelling of ultra-cold atoms in modulated optical potentials.
