Optical Trapping, Tractor Beams and Tetris

As part of the RSC Chemistry Lectures 2004-2005, This very visual lecture by Kishan Dholakia (St Andrews) looks at tiny tractor beams, which are used to hold and manipulate molecules. Kishan will show how versatile the technique is, with molecules being arranged to form people?s names, or even play molecular tetris!
