nPoint Offers New Nanopositioning Piezo Stage

Middleton, WI | Posted on March 25th, 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.
