How Piezo Stages React to Temperature Variation

Qualitative analysis Flexure-based piezo stages are essentially blocks of metal with flexure patterns that create a moving platform suspended from static frame via flexures. The sketch below shows a simplified flexure stage that moves in one direction when the piezo expands or contracts. A capacitive sensor is used as the feedback sensor and a preload […]

Piezo Stage Load vs. Settling Time

To maximize the capabilities of piezo stages, it is important to understand how different factors contribute to the performance of the system. For many applications, the resonant frequency and settling time of a stage are of primary interest. In this blogpost we explore how the resonant frequency and settling time are affected by the load […]
