Abstract
In this paper we present theory and simulations of an optical spring mirror with emphasis on the incident laser beam configuration and the associated optical trapping forces. We elucidate the physical mechanisms underlying the optical trapping using the example of an incident Gaussian beam and demonstrate that guided-wave trapping shows particular promise for stable trapping in both the translational and rotational degrees of freedom.
