Abstract: ABSTRACTLaser-induced optical forces are used to guide and deposit 100 nm - 10 µm diameter particles onto solid surfaces in a process called laser-guided direct-writing. Nearly any particulate material, including both biological and electronic materials, can be manipulated and deposited with micrometer accuracy. Potential applications include three-dimensional cell patterning for tissue engineering, hybrid biological and electronic device construction, and biochip array fabrication
