Optical Spring

(A Processing program to show the effect of an optical spring)

Alexandre Brieussel


This Processing sketch illustrates the so-called `optical spring', a particular coupling between a mechanical oscillator and a light field. To start using the applet click the image below, the applet page also contains more information regarding the use and features of the program.

The applet was programmed during a summer project at the University of Glasgow, UK. See also our other Processing examples.
