Electrically Driven, Optically Levitated Microscopic Rotors

Kavli Affiliate: Giorgio Gratta | First 5 Authors: Alexander D. Rider, Charles P. Blakemore, Akio Kawasaki, Nadav Priel, Sandip Roy | Summary: We report on the electrically driven rotation of $2.4~mu$m-radius, optically levitated dielectric microspheres. Electric fields are used to apply torques to a microsphere’s permanent electric dipole moment, while angular displacement is measured by […]
