Description: Nanotechnology and nano devices is believed to be one of the most promising steps that science is taking to the future. This paper proposes virtual reality (VR) as a tool to simulate nano particle manipulation using optical tweezers towards achieving nano- assembly for effectively handling issues such as difficulty in viewing, perceiving and controlling the nano-scale objects. The nano simulation is modeled, using virtual reality, displaying all the forces acting on nano particle during the manipulation. The simulation is developed for particles that belong to Rayleigh region and, represents interactions of OT (a laser beam) with the nano particle. The laser beam aimed on to the nano particle traps the particle by applying optical forces. The trapped particle is then moved by moving the laser beam. The proposed VR based simulation tool with its capabilities can be easily extended and used for creating an open system framework by connecting it to a real OT setup to control nano particles manipulation. In addition, a feedback system can be build to increase of precision of movement.
