 The following definitions are provided for an understanding of the invention disclosed herein.
“Dielectric constant” is defined to be that property which determines the electrostatic energy stored per unit volume for unit potential gradient. (See, e.g., the New IEEE Standard Dictionary Of Electrical And Electronics Terms,© 1993).
 The “optical dielectric constant” is the dielectric constant of a particle or thing at optical wavelengths. Generally, the optical wavelength range is from 150 Å to 30,000 Å.
 An “optical gradient field” is an optical pattern having a variation in one or more parameters including intensity, wavelength or frequency, phase, polarization or other parameters relating to the optical energy. When generated by an interferometer, an optical gradient field or pattern may also be called an optical fringe field or fringe pattern, or variants thereof.
 A “moving optical gradient field” is an optical gradient field that moves...
