Optical force in time domain (movie)

Optical binding

As shown by the movie the field close to the surface of the sphere the telltale of a creeping wave can be observed (successive bursts in the amplitude of the field at the left and right side of the sphere after the sequence of the incident wave). This particular wave propagates along the surface of the sphere and the interval between successive bursts corresponds to the time it takes the wave to travel around the sphere.
