Mar 2007
PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., Air Bearings and Piezo Precision MotionRequest Info
PI (Physik Instrumente) LP, a leading manufacturer of nanopositioning and piezo-based precision motion-control equipment for bio- and nanotechnology, photonics and semiconductor applications, introduces a new ultrahigh-resolution positioning and scanning system.

The minute P-363 PicoCube, together with its ultralow noise E-536 driver/controller, provides significantly higher resolution and positional stability than previous multiaxis scanning stages.

Features and Advantages:
  • High-speed XYZ scanner for AFM/SPM (atomic force microscopy/scanning probe microscopy) and manipulation tool for nanotechnology
  • Custom, high-stiffness shear piezo drives provide up to 10 kHz resonant frequency for faster response and higher scanning performance
  • Ultralow noise controller enables 25 pm (0.025 nm) resolution
  • Capacitive feedback for exceptional precision and linearity
  • Parallel metrology for better multiaxis accuracy
  • Small and rugged design with titanium case
  • Vacuum-compatible typical applications: AFM/SPM and nanomanipulation, biotechnology, nanotechnology, nano-imprint, semiconductor and data-storage test equipment
The new ultralow-noise E-536 closed-loop controller provides unprecedented positional stability and can be controlled with analog or digital signals. Extensive software support including LabView drivers is provided.

    The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
    The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
    The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
    The successive analysis or synthesizing of the light values or other similar characteristics of the components of a picture area, following a given method.
