Physical Review Letters, Volume 24, Number 4; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 2 pages; From "Letters from the Past" A PRL Retrospective: "This Letter is regarded as the beginning of the use of light to trap particles, which has led to many famous applications. That light exerts pressure on matter has been known since Maxwell’s development of the theory of electromagnetism. In this paper Ashkin reports his experiments using the pressure from laser light to move and trap small transparent spheres in a transparent liquid. In addition he foresees possible developments and their uses of this technique, among them the trapping of individual atoms and viruses. He carried out and participated in many of these important." experiments, which have gained wide recognition. Some ever so slight staining of the exterior edges. Mailing label on rear wrapper.
