  • Nanopositioning Stages

Feb 2010
PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., Air Bearings and Piezo Precision MotionRequest Info
PI (Physik Instrumente) LP has introduced two multiaxis stages for superresolution microscopy. The stages provide accurate motion with subnanometer resolution in two and three axes over travel ranges of 200 µm in X-Y and X-Y-Z. The nano1x3 stages are designed for inverted microscopes from Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss. The large aperture accommodates microscopy accessories such as slide and petri dish holders. Features include a 24-bit controller with USB, Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces and analog control, closed-loop control for subnanometer precision, and ceramic-encapsulated piezo drives for a longer lifetime. All parts are black anodized for minimum reflection. Options include a manual X-Y stage with a motor upgrade. Also available is software support for leading image acquisition packages.

An opening or hole through which radiation or matter may pass.
Return of radiation by a surface, without change in wavelength. The reflection may be specular, from a smooth surface; diffuse, from a rough surface or from within the specimen; or mixed, a combination of the two.  
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
