TL;DR: In this article, a series of monodisperse suspensions of the same chemical composition but of rather different particle sizes was used to study particle size dependent phenomena, such as Brownian motion, light scattering, sedimentation and electrophoresis of small particles.
Abstract: MANY properties of colloids and suspensions depend on the particle size. Series of monodisperse suspensions of the same chemical composition but of rather different particle sizes may be used to study particle size dependent phenomena, such as Brownian motion, light scattering, sedimentation and electrophoresis of small particles. We have used such series to demonstrate the increased tendency of metal suspensions to coagulate in the presence of electrolytes as the radius of the particles increases1.

TL;DR: Optical trapping of dielectric particles by a single-beam gradient force trap was demonstrated for the first reported time, confirming the concept of negative light pressure due to the gradient force.
Abstract: Optical trapping of dielectric particles by a single-beam gradient force trap was demonstrated for the first reported time. This confirms the concept of negative light pressure due to the gradient force. Trapping was observed over the entire range of particle size from 10 μm to ~25 nm in water. Use of the new trap extends the size range of macroscopic particles accessible to optical trapping and manipulation well into the Rayleigh size regime. Application of this trapping principle to atom trapping is considered.
