Optical tweezers have been used as versatile tools for non-contact manipulation of micrometer-sized entities. This paper proposes a hybrid micro/nanoscale manufacturing system using optical tweezers and chemical linkages for fabricating 2D and 3D micro/nanostructures. A holographic multiple trap optical tweezers system is first used to trap particles in a desired pattern. The particles are then connected to form rigid units using suitable chemistry.
