Colloidal particles for confocal microscopy and optical tweezing

Abstract:

A novel colloidal model system is developed for the purpose of achieving simultaneous three-dimensional (3D) confocal imaging and optical tweezing of impurity probe particles embedded in a dense material of colloidal host particles. First, the colloidal host particles are developed from 3-trimethoxysilyl-propylmethacrylate (TPM), and the solvent mixture is tuned to match the refractive index and the density of the particles. A sedimentation-diffusion equilibrium profile of the TPM particle...
