Simplified method for calibrating optical tweezers: Broadband measurement of viscoelasticity with reduced measurement time

Measurements of biomechanical properties inside living cells require minimally invasive methods. Optical tweezers are particularly attractive as a tool. It uses the momentum of light to trap and manipulate micro- or nanoscale particles. A team of researchers led by Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz from the University of M√ľnster (Germany) has now developed a simplified method…
