Using molecular tweezers to move and image nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The ability to manipulate nanoparticles is significant in nanoscale science and technology. As sizes of the objects scale down to the sub-10 nm regime, it imposes a great challenge for the conventional optical tweezers. There has been much effort to explore alternative manipulation methods including using nanostructures, electron beams, scanning probes, etc. In this paper, an overview of the latest advances in trapping and manipulation of nanoparticles with a focus on the emergent electron tweezers is provided.
