X-Y Nanopositioning Scanning Stages

Feb. 9, 2006
The P-714 offers high-speed X-Y nanopositioning and scanning.

The P-714 offers high-speed X-Y nanopositioning and scanning. Designed specifically for cost-sensitive applications, the ultracompact piezodriven stages have an extremely high resonant frequency of 2.2 kHz for submillisecond response. The stages use ceramic-encapsulated piezodrives for longer life. Applications include scanning, alignment, microscopy, imaging/resolution enhancement, and nanopositioning.
