Trajectory Generation with Nanopositioning Systems

Trajectory Generation is the latest feature on nPoint’s nPControl software environment for the LC.400 Series Nanopositioning Controllers. The trajectory generation interface allows a user to scan through up to 500 position coordinates, with velocity and dwell time specified individually for each positioning event. These coordinates are downloaded to the controller for operation. The trajectory generation […]

EPICS Compatibility with nPoint Piezo Stages

EPICS or the Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System, was developed jointly between Los Alamos and Argonne National Laboratories. As a software infrastructure, EPICS is used on beamlines, large telescopes, and for large experiments where many computers and instruments are networked together. At Argonne’s Avanced Photon Source (APS), EPICS is used within the control system […]

nPFocus Objective Z Piezo Positioner Set-Up

The nPFocus series piezo stages allow for fast, precision positioning of optics (often microscope objectives). Speed can be up to 10X faster that other motorized stages allowing for high speed 3D imaging, Z-stacks, and auto focus. Closed-loop control helps system dynamics and ensures position accuracy in the nanometer range. Capacitive sensors are available for high […]

Using nPoint Piezo Stages with Auto Focus Systems

Auto Focus systems are developed to maintain precision focus over extended periods of time and can be used to automate image acquisition while scanning objects. Auto Focus systems combined with piezo stages can produce images with speed and precision even with varying environmental conditions. Auto Focus systems can be combined with conventional microscopes in many […]
