    • Engineering particle trajectories in microfluidic flows using speckle light fields 

      Volpe, G.; Volpe, G.; Gigan, S. (SPIE, 2014)
      Optical tweezers have been widely used in physics, chemistry and biology to manipulate and trap microscopic and nanoscopic objects. Current optical trapping techniques rely on carefully engineered setups to manipulate ...
    • Numerical Simulation of Brownian Particles in Optical Force Fields 

      Volpe, G.; Volpe, G. (2013)
      Optical forces can affect the motion of a Brownian particle. For example, optical tweezers use optical forces to trap a particle at a desirable position. Using more complex force fields it is possible to generate more ...
    • Numerical simulation of optically trapped particles 

      Volpe, Giorgio.; Volpe, Giovanni. (SPIE, 2014)
      Some randomness is present in most phenomena, ranging from biomolecules and nanodevices to financial markets and human organizations. However, it is not easy to gain an intuitive understanding of such stochastic phenomena, ...
    • Simulation of active Brownian particles in optical potentials 

      Volpe, G.; Gigan, S.; Volpe, G. (S P I E - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2014)
      Optical forces can affect the motion of a Brownian particle. For example, optical tweezers use optical forces to trap a particle at a desirable position. Unlike passive Brownian particles, active Brownian particles, also ...
