Optical Forces Produced by Localized Sources This talk will discuss the properties of the optical forces produced by localized sources (i.e., elementary source distributions resembling nanoantennas, probes and/or active nanoparticles). Particular attention will be devoted to the optical manipulation and trapping of resonant nanoparticles, as well as to the force density induced when a localized source is immersed in different media such as lossy dielectrics, metamaterials with negative permittivity and permeability, and zero-index media.
