    Abstract

    Carbon nanotubes are the focus of intense research interest because of their unique properties and applications potential. We present a study based on quantum electrodynamics concerning the optical force between a pair of nanotubes under laser irradiance. To identify separate effects associated with the pair orientation and laser beam geometry, two different systems are analyzed, For each, an analytical expression for the laser-induced optical force is determined, and the corresponding magnitude is estimated. © 2005 Optical Society of America.
