    • Quantitative assessment of non-conservative radiation forces in an optical trap 

      Pesce, G.; Volpe, Giovanni; De Luca, A. C.; Rusciano, G.; Volpe, G. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2009-05)
      The forces acting on an optically trapped particle are usually assumed to be conservative. However, the presence of a non-conservative component has recently been demonstrated. Here, we propose a technique that permits one ...
