Optical Trapping Applications (OTA)
14 - 18 April 2013
14 April 2013
Waikoloa Marriott Beach Resort and Spa, Waikoloa Beach,
Optical Trapping Applications encompasses all areas of particle manipulation and measurement, from optical manipulation to acoustic trapping, emphasizing new and developing application areas.
This meeting covers the whole range of topical particle manipulation technologies currently being developed for studies in biophysics, single molecule, single cell and tissue level analysis, lab-on-a-chip development, optoechanical cooling, environmental monitoring and theoretical underpinnings. Technologies to be considered include optical tweezers and associated techniques, but will try and capture synergies between different trapping and manipulation modalities such as acoustic trapping and electrical trapping with a view to encouraging discussion between different user groups and the development of new hybrid techniques.
1. Optical manipulation fundamentals and technologies
2. Optical manipulation applications
3. Alternative particle manipulation techniques
