Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Trapping and steering of single photophoretically self-propelled Janus type particles using a feedback mechanism is experimentally demonstrated. The mechanism provides increased localization accuracy for decreasing particle radius and allows further the control of multiple particles independently.
