New Objective Focusing Nanopositioner from nPoint

Middleton, WI | Posted on July 30th, 2014

The nPFocus1000 nanopositioner is a piezo-driven, flexure-guided stage, designed for high speed and nanometer precision. With a position noise of 5 nm in the Z axis, this stage provides the accuracy necessary for today's advanced optics applications. When paired with the LC.400 series DSP controllers, the system provides closed-loop capability via capacitive sensors. The nPFocus1000 has a travel of 1000 µm in the Z axis allowing for deeper cross sections and scanning thicker features. It can be used in many configurations, including standard upright and inverted microscopes. The stage is designed to be used with many commercially available objective lenses creating a great deal of flexibility for incorporation into optics and nanotechnology systems.

As the latest addition to nPoint's piezo stage offering, the nPFocus1000 can be used in a variety of areas including research, manufacturing, and as an OEM system component.

Application examples include: automated optical inspection, auto focus systems, optical microscopy, metrology, materials testing, single-molecule spectroscopy, and in vivo imaging.
