We investigate the optical manipulation of nanoparticles with the resonant nonlinear optical response. Efficient trapping of nanoparticles observed in experiments under the resonance condition is elucidated by considering optical nonlinearity. Also, we propose the flexible optical manipulations of nanoparticles that have gain by optical pumping. The pulling force and the rotational switching are demonstrated, where the stimulated emission from nanoparticles with inverted population is considered. These results show that utilizing nonlinear optical effect will greatly enhance the degrees of freedom to manipulate nanoparticles.
