Optical Tweezers: The Toolbox of the Microworld
Abstract
On 2 October 2018, the Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the award of the Nobel Prize in Physics for that year. Among the three honored scientists was an American physicist, A. Ashkin, who was chosen for his “pioneering research project on optical tweezers and their applications in biology,” as the announcement plainly and comprehensively stated. Ashkin invented the optical tweezers, which are an extremely effective tool that helps us capture atoms, particles, viruses, and cells, and that has paved the way for unprecedented, revolutionary applications.
