PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. - a leading manufacturer of ultra-precision motion-control and sensing equipment for bio / nanotechnology, photonics, semiconductor and life science applications - offers a new brochure on capacitive nanometrology displacement sensors and electronics.

New Literature Release / New Brochure: Capacitive Nanometrology Sensors: Measuring Displacement, Vibration, Thickness

Auburn, MA | Posted on July 26th, 2007

The brochure presents PI's state-of-the-art sensor systems and also features a tutorial on single plate and dual plate capacitive sensors and an applications overview:

- Measuring Displacement with Nanometer Precision
- Nanopositioning / Closed-Loop Systems
- Parallel Metrology / High-Precision Multi-Axis Measurements
- Measuring Straightness and Flatness / Active Cross-Talk Compensation
- Out-of-Plane Measurement / Constant-Height Scans / Out-of-Round Measurement
- Tip / Tilt Measurement and Compensation
- Measuring Vibration, Flatness, Thickness
- Force Sensors with Micronewton Sensitivity
- Layer Thickness Measurement with Sub-Micron Accuracy

More Information:
The brochure is free of charge and can be ordered from PI; a PDF is also available for download at:

Capacitive Sensors perform high-precision, non-contact measurements of geometric quantities representing displacement, separation, position, length or other linear dimension against any kind of electrically conductive target. These nanometrology sensors combine superior resolution and linearity with very high bandwidth for dynamic measurements.
