Fractal zone plate beam based optical tweezers

Shubo Cheng, Xinyu Zhang, Wenzhuo Ma & Shaohua Tao

We demonstrate optical manipulation with an optical beam generated by a fractral zone plate (FZP). The experimental results show that the FZP beam can simultaneously trap multiple particles positioned in different focal planes of the FZP beam, owing to the multiple foci and self-reconstruction property of the FZP beam. The FZP beam can also be used to construct three-dimensional optical tweezers for potential applications.
