The spatial resolution of conventional optics, which is necessary for non-destructive capture of microobjects, is limited by diffraction to a value equal to half the radiation wavelength. Despite this limitation, the use of optical methods is one of the main directions in biological and biomedical research, since only optical methods have a minimal impact on living organisms. Rapid progress in this area is largely based on the development of new optical technologies. Significant progress in mesoscale photonics has allowed researchers to develop methods for controlling structured beams for optical traps. Some recent trends in the field of optical manipulation based on mesoscale dielectric particles are analyzed mainly based on our studies.
