The optical tweezers toolbox can be used to calculate optical forces and torques of particles using the T-matrix formalism in a vector spherical wave basis. The toolbox includes codes for calculating T-matrices, beams described by vector spherical wave functions, functions for calculating forces and torques, simple codes for simulating dynamics and examples.
