PI Expands Line of Nanopositioning Systems
Nano positioning stages.
Auburn, MA — PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. has extended its line of piezo stages for super-resolution microscopy. The new PI nano series nanopositioning stages have a very low profile of 20mm (0.8-in.), a large aperture, and deliver highly accurate motion with sub-nanometer resolution in 2 and 3 axes.

A piezo controller is included and comes with a 24-bit USB port, Ethernet, RS-232 and an analog interface, as well as solid software support for all major image acquisition packages. The piezo stage is supplemented by the optional M-545 manual XY microscope stage available in different versions for Olympus, Nikon, Zeiss and Leica microscopes.

The nano series of piezo stages extends the company's successful P-527, P-733 and P-563 series of capacitive direct-metrology nanopositioning stages. The nano series systems were developed to provide high performance at lower cost, by adapting mechanics and controller exactly to the requirements of the target applications. For highly stable, closed-loop operation, piezoresistive sensors are applied directly to the moving structure and precisely measure the displacement of the stage platform. The very high sensitivity of these sensors provides optimum position stability and responsiveness as well as sub-nanometer resolution. The proprietary servo controller significantly improves the motion linearity compared to conventional piezoresistive sensor controllers.
