Radiation force of abruptly autofocusing Airy beams on a Rayleigh particle

Yunfeng Jiang, Kaikai Huang, and Xuanhui Lu
The radiation force of circular Airy beams (CAB) on a dielectric Rayleigh particle is investigated in this paper. Our results show that the CAB can be used to trap the particle whose refractive index is larger than the ambient at different positions along the beam axis. Comparing with the Gaussian beam under the same conditions, the longitudinal and the transverse gradient force of CAB on the Rayleigh particle are increased, and the particle can be trapped more stable. Our analyses also demonstrate that the trapping properties of CAB can be modulated by controlling corresponding parameters of CAB.
