Dynamics of an active Nanoparticle in an optical trap
Paper in proceeding, 2021

We investigate a nanoparticle inside an optical trap and driven away from equilibrium by self-induced concentration gradients. We find that a nanoparticle performs fast orbital rotations and its probability density shifting away from equilibrium.
