Mad City Labs Inc. of Madison, Wis., has appointed Elliot Scientific Ltd. of Harpenden, UK, as the distributor of its products in the UK and Ireland. Mad City’s flexure-based nanopositioning systems offer subnanometer positioning resolution – single and multiaxis – and stages with rotation/tilt for a variety of uses. Applications include adaptive optics, ultrahigh-vacuum use and micropositioning systems designed to fit most current microscopes.

adaptive optics
Optical components or assemblies whose performance is monitored and controlled so as to compensate for aberrations, static or dynamic perturbations such as thermal, mechanical and acoustical disturbances, or to adapt to changing conditions, needs or missions. The most familiar example is the "rubber mirror,'' whose surface shape, and thus reflective qualities, can be controlled by electromechanical means. See also active optics; phase conjugation.
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
