Abstract
We report long-range optical binding of multiple polystyrene nanoparticles (100-600 nm in diameter) at fixed interparticle distances that match multiples of the half-beat-lengths between the lowest order modes of a hollow-core photonic crystal fiber. Analysis suggests that each nanoparticle converts the incoming optical mode into a superposition of co-propagating modes, within the beat pattern of which further particles can become trapped. Strikingly, the entire particle arrangement can be moved over a distance of several cm, without changing the inter-particle spacing, by altering the ratio of backward-to-forward optical power. Potential applications are in multi-dimensional nanoparticle-based quantum optomechanical systems.
