A numerical analysis is carried out of the influence of the de-phasing parameter of an optical conveyor belt in the enantiomeric separation. The optical conveyor belt is obtained by the interference of a Laguerre Gaussian and a Gaussian beam with different beam waists, which are temporally de-phased. In order to obtain the maximum separation distance between enantiomers, we calculate the optimum range of values of the de-phasing parameter. View Full-Text
