Hybrid ray optics and continuum mechanics modeling of cell deformation in the optical stretcher

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


There is no direct method for measuring the optical pressures that stretch biological cells in the optical stretcher. A hybrid computational method has been developed to quantify the deformation of living cells.
