My research work is in creative ways for challenging problems in optical trapping and micromanipulation, especially on the single beam "optical tweezers" approaches that are used to infer the physical properties on the micro and nanoscale. Therefore applying optical trapping to the disciplines of nanoscience and nanobiotechnology, in which the system studied is manipulated in the nanometer scale, or the tools from nanotechnology are applied to study biological phenomena. To achieve this understanding, I develop theoretical models and experimental setups to uncover their properties. This research is supported by Universidade Federal do ABC, and the CNPq.
