Quantitative measurement of small forces and small displacement using holographic optical tweezers (HOTs) is finding increasing applications due to the features of non-contact and high accuracy manipulation. Although hologram optimization algorithms have been widely reported, the holographic optical trapping performance relying on the algorithms has not been studied systematically. In this paper, we investigated the force measuring the performance of various types of HOTs generated with six different hologram algorithms (GSW, GAA, GS, SR, S, and RM). To do this, we built up a HOT instrument and compared the light fields' intensity distribution, trap stiffness, efficiency, and calculation time of multi-point trap arrays generated by six hologram algorithms with this setup. Our work will provide a better understanding of the performance of different hologram algorithms in HOTs.
