A review of recent advancements in photonic forces is presented. We discuss in detail the interaction of light and sub-wavelength particles on a substrate illuminated by total internal reflection, and we study the opticalforces experienced by the particles. The effects of plasmon-mode excitations on the resulting photonic forces on metallic particles are also addressed. Moreover, we explore the possibility of using the metallic tip of a classical apertureless microscope to create optical tweezers, and thus to achieve a selective manipulation of nanoparticles.
