FIG. 1.

Monitoring changes in the shape of a trapped RBC at values of incident laser power (a) 10 mW and (b) 25 mW. The frames are from a real-time movie. The dual membrane structure that is visible is indicative of the RBC being folded within the optical trap.

FIG. 2.

(a) Variation with size of the rotation period of mice RBCs when circularly polarized light (17 mW) is used in the optical trap. (b) Dependence on laser power of the rotation period of diameter human RBCs. The lines are drawn to guide the eyes. Higher laser power resulted in faster rotations (speeds up to 140 rpm were attained at 100 mW power) but was accompanied by thermally induced cell damage.
