I am trying to figure out a method for using optical tweezers to manipulate individual atoms into new meta-material structures. I understand this would require a very complicated process. I thought of some general steps this process might use. This is roughly what I think it might require. 1. Detect atoms of interest and their current frequency range. 2. Adjust frequencies of lasers to match the frequency of the desired atoms. 3. Apply lasers to the desired atom to cool atom to a manageable temperature. Recalibrate laser frequency as atom is cooled to detected frequency of atom in continuous loop executed automatically through a mechanism that detects atoms position and frequency real time and adjusts lasers frequency and orientations as required. 4. Once targeted atom is sufficiently cooled to a temperature where tweezing it to new controlled positions is possible, orient lasers to move atom to desired position. It is possible temperature of atom may rise as lasers are continuously being applied to move it. While moving atom real time detection of position and temperature of atom is also required to be used to move atom while keeping its temperature controlled. 5. Move atom with lasers into positions with other atoms to bond in a way to form desired material structure. Have to find a way to compensate for inter-atomic forces when doing this such as Van der Waals force. Does anyone have any suggestions for anything else that would need to be considered in order to do something like this or how this can be done?
