PI Receives US Patent for Piezo Actuator Technology
Dec 2008
Physik Instrumente (PI) of Auburn, Mass., a manufacturer of piezoactuators and precision motion control equipment, has received a US patent for its development of multilayer ceramic actuators. PI’s Picma piezoceramic actuators are based on stress reduction and encapsulation technologies that increase lifetime by several orders of magnitude both in static and dynamic applications, addressing key lifetime mechanisms common to other piezoelectric actuators.

Mechanical device intended for the translation (rotational and linear) using high precision control from electronically operated circuits. See linear actuator; rotary actuator.
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...
