报告内容：We experimentally demonstrate several useful applications of random gold plasmonic nano-islands in optofluidics, including (i) optical trapping and assembling of particles and live cells into highly organized pattern with low power density [1,2] and (ii) optically actuated microfluidic flow guiding and valves . The observed trapping effect is attributed to optical forces from localized surface plasmons combined with thermal convection that pushes the target objects into the trapping zone. It was found that thermophoresis plays a critical role in the system. More recently we reported trapping in pure resistive-heating, i.e. photon-free, devices . Our work provides a simple platform for on-chip optical manipulation of nanoand micro-sized objects, and may find applications in physical and life sciences.
