I read in some articles that the force in optical tweezers can be written as: F=kx, with no minus because the force will increase as the distance increased and the particle moves to the source..., This I can understand, but what I can not understand if I make integral (it is conservative force) the potential will be: -0.5kx^2, which then is a not harmonic potential well... but in the same time I read in some articles that they took the potential as: 0.5kx^2 ...
Can anyone give me hints please..?!
