Hands-on with optical tweezers: a multitouch interface for holographic optical trapping.

Author information

  • 1H. H. Wills Physics Laboratories, University of Bristol, Bristol, England, United Kingdom.


We report the implementation of a multitouch console for control of a holographic optical tweezers system. This innovative interface enables the independent but simultaneous interactive control of numerous optical traps by multiple users, overcoming the limitations of traditional interfaces and placing the full power of holographic optical tweezing into the operators' hands.
