Mirror manipulation by attractive and repulsive forces of guided waves.


Two mirrors guiding laser light may experience an either attractive or repulsive force, according to the type of eigenmode they guide. We propose a method for the control over the motion of a mirror by changing the operation wavelength along the dispersion curve of the mode. In addition, a novel method for trapping a mirror in a stable equilibrium, based on a superposition of two modes, is presented. The mirror is then trapped by being exposed to light only from one of its sides.
