The methods for generation of optical traps in the form of line segments by means of liquid crystal modulators of two types are addressed in the paper, they are a multi-pixel modulator HOLOEYE HEO 1080P and a tunable liquid crystal focusing device (4-channel modulator) developed by the authors. The numerical and experimental assessment of the capture forces of the generated optical trap is fulfilled. The description of manipulation experiments with microobjects, including biological ones, carried out by the optical traps with the intensity distribution in the form of segments is offered.
