Abstract

Flow-based measures to automate optical trapping have significant limitations. A scheme is advanced here where a spherical bead is first located in a trap, and a second bead below the focus point is selectively drawn into the trap to replace the original particle. Experimentation conducted showed that it was possible to do so with little perturbation of other surrounding particles. Simulations done allowed for a clearer description of the exchange mechanism.
