Chair: Pavel Ginzburg
This Section brings together leading scientists and young researchers working on the control of micro- and nano- objects, suspended by optical, electric or magnetic forces. The most recent experimental and theoretical advances will be discussed with an outlook to fundamental experiments and technological applications.
Trapped miniature particles offer a promising route towards achieving unprecedent sensing and manipulation capabilities. This Special Section will focus on the aspects of optomechanics that are unique to these small and highly controllable mechanical systems. Well established platforms along with promising new proposals for biotechnologies at the interface of nanophysics and biophotonics will be discussed.
