Abstract

We present a compact fiber-based optical airborne particle trap that is integrated on a microscope slide. Light guided in a short glass capillary is used to inject micron-sized droplets into an optical trap formed by the same light and a counterpropagating beam emanating from a single-mode optical fiber. The glass capillary ensures separation of trapped particles from remaining aerosol in the injection chamber. Permanent alignment of the fibers and the capillary allows for adjustment-free operation. Mie resonances arising in the radiation pressure exerted on trapped droplets are detected via a position stabilization feedback loop and are used to precisely determine the size evolution of trapped glycerol–water droplets.
