Short Abstract
We investigate a nanoparticle inside an optical trap and driven away from equilibrium by self-induced concentration gradients. We find that a nanoparticle performs fast orbital rotations and its probability density shifting away from equilibrium.
Non-spherical nanoparticle held by optical tweezers. The particle is trapped against the cover slide.
