This article presents the usage of coupled dipole method for calculation of optical binding between two dielectric spheres placed in two counter-propagating Gaussian laser beams that do not interfere. The results show that there exist combinations of the refractive indices of the particle and the surrounding medium where two stable distances between spheres exist.
