Abstract
Since a proposal and pioneering experiments by Ashkin et all for trapping a small dielectric particle by using the laser radiation pressure (RP), this technique has been applied in wide fields of chemistry and biology, known as optical tweezers, and in new-type optical microscopy. By considering the laser trapping from the viewpoint of optical particle sizing based on the laser light scattering, e.g. photon correlation spectroscopy2' 3 (PCS), in which the Brownian motion of particles plays an important role, the radiation pressure of an illuminating laser beam may affect the motion of particles under investigation in despite of the unsuspected assumption that the illuminating laser beam does not distort the particles' motion.
