Press Release Summary:
Featuring 80 x 80 mm aperture, P-542 utilizes frictionless flexure guided design that provides travel range of 200 x 200 Âµm. Piezo-drives allow multi-axis motion with millisecond response times, and capacitive feedback is integrated for closed-loop operation with subnanometer precision and motion linearity with less than 0.03% error. Design promotes integration and is offered in aluminum-, Invar-, and vacuum-compatible versions in XY, Z, and XYZ combinations.
Original Press Release:
XY Nanopositioning Stages for Nanotechnology / Biotechnology-Research
The new P-542 XY nanopositioning stage from Nanopositioning Specialist PI was especially designed for biotechnology and nanotechnology applications.
Its frictionless flexure guided design provides a large travel range of 200 x 200 µm. High-performance piezo-drives allow fast multi-axis motion with response times in the millisecond range. Capacitive feedback is integrated for closed-loop operation with subnanometer precision, and excellent motion linearity with less than 0.03% errors.
Typical Applications: The stage is ideally suited for imaging, alignment and nanomanipulation such as required in Cell Tracking, DNA Analysis, Nanoassembly, and Nanomaterials Testing applications .
A very low profile and large aperture make for easy integration into high-resolution microscopes and other probing instruments.
