Abstract
We study theoretically the parameters of the laser trap, created due to the interference of the incident wave and the wave reflected from a dielectric mirror (standing wave trap). We show that (up to our knowledge) this type of the optical trap is the only one which enables 3D optical trapping using a classical (non-inverted) microscope with low N.A. optics. Due to the standing wave nature there are many stable trapping points in this trap so that several objects can be simultaneously trapped along the beam axis. The force and trap stiffness are studied as the functions of the laser beam parameters (beam waist w0, distance of the beam waist from the mirror z0) and particle properties (radius a, relative refractive index nrel). The effect of the structural resonances on the force magnitude is also discussed.
