Photonic metasurfaces for self-stabilizing optical manipulation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We discuss a novel use of photonic metasurfaces and metamaterials for mechanical stabilization of freestanding objects. Self-restoring optical forces and torques can arise from asymmetric scattering of the metasurface unit cell.
