P-542 XY Nanopositioning Stages
Dec 2005

For Biotech, Nanotech Research Applications
AUBURN, Mass., Dec. 20 -- The new P-542 XY nanopositioning stage was especially designed for biotechnology and nanotechnology applications, according to its maker, Physik Instrumente (PI).
According to the company, the P-542's frictionless flexure-guided design provides a travel range of 200 x 200 µm. High-performance piezo-drives allow for fast multiaxis motion with response times in the millisecond range. Capacitive feedback is integrated for closed-loop operation with subnanometer precision, and motion linearity with less than 0.03 percent errors. The P-542 can be used in XY, Z and XYZ combinations and is available in aluminum-, invar- and vacuum-compatible versions.

PI says the nanopositioning stage is ideally suited for imaging, alignment and nanomanipulation such as required in cell tracking, DNA analysis, nanoassembly and nanomaterials testing applications. A very low profile and large aperture (80 x 80 mm) make for easy integration of the stage into high-resolution microscopes and other probing instruments. The company offers a variety of analog and 32-bit digital controllers for research and OEM customers.
