Abstract: In this study we present a universal theoretical formulation of the particle motions in electrophoretic and dielectrophoretic traps. It is extended from the well-known Mathieu equation based theories for Paul trap. The white noise random force model is utilized to form the Brownian motion of particle in the traps and the instantaneous dielectrophoretic force is employed rather than the time-averaged ponderomotive expression. The new approach enables many interesting properties of dielectrophoretic traps about stability and random motion. This study will be expected to provide a concrete protocol for the design of nanoscale traps which is essential in single molecule analysis.
