In this letter, we report multiple-channel longitudinal optical guiding of microparticles using an array of Bessel beams generated from a composite hologram fabricated by ultraviolet lithography. The optical guiding efficiency of each Bessel beam in the optical array is investigated experimentally. The rod-like core of each Bessel beam, with its nondiffracting and self-reconstruction property, has been shown to offer strong capability for optical guiding along the propagation axis possibly even in multiple-microfluidic channels massively.
