Abstract
Based on the micron precision manipulation and measurement in the optical tweezers, we built an optical-trap system that can make quantitative measurement of displacement with nanometer resolution in millisecond time scale and then we can measure the piconewton force involved in the process. It is an eminent tool for manipulating biological specimens at the macromolecular level. In this paper we describe its technical properties, design, and make some discussion.
