Arthur Ashkin, with his discovery of the optical tweezers, has made possible the dream of science fiction to manipulate matter with light. The optical tweezers have opened up an extremely interesting field of science, not yet exhausted, where questions of fundamental physics intertwine with intriguing investigations of biological systems at level of single macromolecule or cell.
