SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 21, 2012 — New Focus, a Newport Corp. brand, has introduced the Clear Edge Picomotor Mount 8821. The new mirror mount, featuring a clear edge for greater beam access, has two picomotor actuators for added precision and stability. It comes in a single compact and cost-effective package. Sapphire seats and optimized springs deliver smooth, reliable operation while maintaining a high level of thermal and mechanical stability. The kinematic 8821 mount accommodates 25.4-mm optics ranging in thickness from 6 to 10 mm. The picomotor features integrated knobs for quick manual adjustment of all axes. It is fully compatible with the company’s 8702 Picomotor drive module and the iPico series, as well as its GuideStar II laser beam steering correction system. A left-handed mirror mount, the 8821L, is also available. Both are in black anodized aluminum. They are used in research, laboratory and industrial tasks.
