Numerical modelling of optical trapping in hollow photonic crystal cavities

Photonic crystal (PhC) devices owing to their strong confinement of electromagnetic energy are considered to be excellent candidates for on chip optical trapping of dielectric or biological particles in the nanometer range. In this work, we study and present hollow PhC cavities and characterize them for their trapping stiffness, trapping stability and variation of resonance wavelength due to the presence of various sized single particles in the cavity.
