Optical forces induced by metal nanoparticle clusters

Jordi Sancho-Parramon, Salvador Bosch
The strong field localization generated between closely placed metal particles excited by electromagnetic radiation induces intense forces on small polarizable objects. In this study we investigate the optical forces that can be generated in the vicinity of metal nanoparticle clusters using fully electrodynamic numerical simulations. The influence of the cluster configuration as well as of the excitation parameters is analyzed.
