PI Receives Patent for Piezo Actuators
Auburn, MA — PI (Physik Instrumente) has received a United States patent for its development of innovative multilayer ceramic actuators. The company's exclusive PICMA
piezo-ceramic actuators are based on the novel stress reduction and encapsulation technologies which increase lifetime by several orders of magnitude both in static and dynamic applications, addressing key lifetime mechanisms common to other piezoelectric actuators.
The Patent, No. 7,449,077, is titled "Method for the production of monolithic multilayer actuator made of a piezoceramic or electrostrictive material and external electrical contact for a monolithic multilayer actuator."
Typical applications for piezoceramic actuators include semiconductor test and measurement; life sciences, nanomanipulation; aerospace and astronomy; optics, photonics and metrology; spectroscopy, microscopy, AFMs, NSOM, nanomanipulation; lithography; nanopatterning; motion control: microsteppers, voice-coils; and data storage microactuation.
