Abstract

We describe a new method for focusing and concentrating a stream of moving micron-sized aerosol particles in air. The focusing and concentrating process is carried out by the combined drag force and optical force that is generated by a double-layer co-axial nozzle and a focused doughnut-shaped hollow laser beam, respectively. This method should supply a new tool for aerosol science and related research.
