Title: Radiation-driven rotational motion of nanoparticles

Abstract

Focused synchrotron beams can influence a studied sampleviaheating, or radiation pressure effects due to intensity gradients. The high angular sensitivity of rotational X-ray tracking of crystalline particlesviatheir Bragg reflections can detect extremely small forces such as those caused by field gradients. By tracking the rotational motion of single-crystal nanoparticles embedded in a viscous or viscoelastic medium, the effects of heating in a uniform gradient beam and radiation pressure in a Gaussian profile beam were observed. Changes in viscosity due to X-ray heating were measured for 42 µm crystals in glycerol, and angular velocities of 10–6 rad s–1due to torques of 10–24 N m were measured for 340 nm crystals in a colloidal gel matrix. Furthermore these results show the ability to quantify small forces using rotation motion of tracer particles.
