Optical forces on microspheres inside hollow core photonic crystal fibers (HC-PCFs) are often predicted using a ray optics model, which constrains its validity based on wavelength and microsphere sizes. Here, we introduce a rigorous treatment of the electromagnetic forces based on the Lorenz-Mie theory, which involves analytical determination of beam shape coefficients for the optical modes of a HC-PCF. The method is more practicable than numerical approaches and, in contrast with ray optics models, it is not limited by system size parameters. Time of flight measurements of microspheres flying through the HC-PCF lead to results consistent with the Lorenz-Mie predictions.

Abstract

Optical forces on microspheres inside hollow core photonic crystal fibers (HC-PCFs) are often predicted using a ray optics model, which constrains its validity based on wavelength and microsphere sizes. Here, we introduce a rigorous treatment of the electromagnetic forces based on the Lorenz-Mie theory, which involves analytical determination of beam shape coefficients for the optical modes of a HC-PCF. The method is more practicable than numerical approaches and, in contrast with ray optics models, it is not limited by system size parameters. Time of flight measurements of microspheres flying through the HC-PCF lead to results consistent with the Lorenz-Mie predictions.
