abstract

We present a useful tool for manipulating biological samples in microscopy. Cells and cell organelles can be trapped, moved and stretched with a combination of optical tweezers and an optical trap consisting of two opposing single mode optical fibers. Experiments demonstrate trapping and manipulation of micro-beads, and even mechanical deformation of blood cells with the system.
