IMPETUX will be at the OSA conference: Optical Trapping Applications (OTA)
April 12nd-15th 2015
Pinnacle Vancouver Harbourfront Hotel,
We will be giving the invited talk:
We will be also exhibiting our instruments as well as a set up with a very interesting demo that will show the power of our technology. We will be at the booth#106 and more than pleased to meet you there and have a chat about your need in the optical trapping field!.

Here, we show the potential of the detection of changes in the light momentum as a precise method to determine forces in complex samples: in non-homogeneous media, with non-Gaussian beams and on non-spherical particles.
