Optical Trapping Applications (OTA)


Optical Trapping Applications (OTA)

14 - 18 4月 2013
Hawaii, USA

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.
