Optical tweezers affected by monochromatic aberrations
Standard optical tweezers are often built as inverted microscopes consisting of reflective, diffractive or refractive optical components. These optical elements are used to adapt the laser beam size, shape the beam profile and finally to generate the optical trap. Each optical component potentially suffers from various aberrations. In this contribution we investigate the effect of aberrations on the trapping performance.
