New NPXY200-401 Piezo Stage
The NPXY200-401 nanopositioner is the latest addition to nPoint’s piezo stage lineup. This new stage is designed for advanced research and OEM markets where speed, precision, and flexibility are required.
Middleton, WI – March 25,2014 – The NPXY200-401 nanopositioning stage from nPoint is a piezo driven, flexure guided stage, designed for high speed and nanometer precision. The stage has a large aperture (68mm X 68mm) yet is very thin (17mm). With a position noise of 0.7nm the NPXY200-401 provides the accuracy necessary for today’s advanced applications. When paired with the LC.402 DSP controller, the system provides closed-loop capability via capacitive sensors. The NPXY200-401 has travel of 200µm in both the X and Y axis and with the large aperture, creates a great deal of flexibility for incorporation in optics and nanotechnology systems. A resonant frequency of 500Hz allows for fast scanning and settling times less than 8ms.
As the latest addition to nPoint’s piezo stage offering, the NPXY200-401 can be used in a variety of areas including research, manufacturing, and as an OEM system component.
Application examples include: near-field scanning optical microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, optical microscopy, lithography, nanometer-scale manipulation, metrology, and optical fiber alignment.
