Role of nonconservative scattering forces and damping on Brownian particles in optical traps

Abstract

We consider a model of a particle trapped in a harmonic optical trap but with the addition of a nonconservative radiation induced force. This model is known to correctly describe experimentally observed trapped particle statistics for a wide range of physical parameters, such as temperature and pressure. We theoretically analyze the effect of nonconservative force on the underlying steady state distribution as well as the power spectrum for the particle position. We compute perturbatively the probability distribution of the resulting nonequilibrium steady states for all dynamical regimes underdamped through to overdamped and give expressions for the associated currents in phase space (position and velocity). We also give the spectral density of the trapped particle's position in all dynamical regimes and for any value of the nonconservative force. Signatures of the presence of nonconservative forces are shown to be particularly strong for the underdamped regime at low frequencies.
