IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 4, 2009 – Newport Corp. has announced a line of nanopositioning piezo stages and a three-axis controller and driver.
The family offers reliable, multi-layer, low-voltage piezoelectric transducers and delivers nanometer resolution with fast response time. They are available with high resolution strain gage position sensors for accurate, repeatable motion.
The NPX linear stage is available in X, XY and XYZ configurations. The multi-axis XY and XYZ devices utilize an advanced parallel motion principle to ensure prefect parallel and straight motion up to 400-µm travel. They are suitable for optical delay lines, interferometers, laser lithography and scanning microscopy applications.
The NPO nanofocusing stages, mounted between the microscope and the objectives, allow up to 250 µm focusing range and are compatible with most microscopes and objectives.
Generating large forces up to 1000 N, the NPA translators are suitable for high load, dynamic applications including machine tools, active vibration and adaptive mechanics. They are also suitable for scanning microscopy, laser tuning and beam steering, patch clamping and microlithography applications due to their small size and high resonant frequency.
The company also offers the PSM ultrafast piezo steering mirror to provide high-speed, sub-microradiation resolution, tip, tilt and Z-motion for mirrors, gratings and other optics. It is equipped with a direct piezo actuation system without lever arm transmission and is suited for high bandwidth laser beam steering, switching and stabilization, beam scanning, image stabilization and laser cavity tuning.
