How shaping light can change particle behavior

Interactions between tiny particles trapped in light are found to differ, depending on the light’s shape, report scientists. Physical phenomena, such as particle behavior in higher order modes not only allows for better control of the particle positions, but additionally could be useful in studying quantum effects with chains of atoms in 1D crystal-like structures, they say.
