Abstract

In this paper, we propose a method for forming steady patterns of microparticles in a dispersion using optical tweezers. We demonstrate how to control the congregation of panicles in a dispersion and to manually fabricate a pattern. The steady pattern may be useful for in-depth research, and the method will have applications in biology and nanotechnology.
