Charged microparticles in an aqueous environment are trapped in microsized tunable aqueous virtual pores (AVP) formed by quadrupole electric fields of a linear Paul microtrap. The AVP is controlled by the electrophoretic and dielectrophoretic forces, and its main advantage over a physical nanopore is relaxation of critical dimension control, which simplifies device fabrication. The radial dimension of the desired trapping region could be significantly smaller than the actual fabricated dimensions.
