Abstract
The micromanipulation of objects into 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometries within holographic optical tweezers is carried out using a modified Gerchberg-Saxton algorithm. The modified algorithm calculates phase hologram sequences, used to reconfigure the geometries of optical traps in several planes simultaneously. The hologram sequences are calculated automatically from the initial, intermediate and final trap positions. Manipulation of multiple objects in this way is semi-automated, once the traps in their initial positions are loaded.
