In this paper we present simple tool based on radiation pressure which is useful for manipulations with microobjects. It consists of three photopolymerized waveguides attached to planar surface. With precise setting of outgoing light power, we demonstrate controlled movement of micrometer-sized particles and their clusters. We also show separation of particular particle from a cluster into area outside the active region.
