"Optical Forces Produced by Localized Sources"

Who: Iņigo Liberal and Iņigo Ederra (Univ. Pública de Navarra)

Place: Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC).Paseo Manuel de Lardizabal, 4 (nearby the Facultad de Quimica), Donostia

Date: Tuesday, 21 January 2014, 12:00

This talk will discuss the properties of the optical forces produced by
localized sources (i.e., elementary source distributions resembling
nanoantennas, probes and/or active nanoparticles). Particular attention
will be devoted to the optical manipulation and trapping of resonant
nanoparticles, as well as to the force density induced when a localized
source is immersed in different media such as lossy dielectrics,
metamaterials with negative permittivity and permeability, and zero-index
