This paper reports on cell and microparticle manipulation using optically induced dielectrophoresis. Our novel optoelectronic tweezers (OET) device enables optically controlled trapping, transportation, and sorting via dielectrophoretic forces. By integrating a spatial light modulator and using direct imaging, arbitrary dynamic manipulation patterns are obtained. Here, we demonstrate manipulation functions, including particle collectors, single-particle traps, individually addressable single-particle arrays, light-defined particle channels, and size-based particle sorting. OET-induced particle manipulation velocities are analyzed as a function of the applied voltage, optical pattern linewidth, and single-particle trap dimensions.
