Piezo Stage Orthogonality

Orthogonality Correction for Piezo Flexure Stages

nPoint is now offering an easy way for correcting the orthogonality error of XY scanners for the most demanding scanning applications. This capability is primarily used by OEM customers in applications such as Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). An external method for measuring the orthogonality error is necessary prior to applying such correction. The AFM application […]

AFM cantilever force, f, plotted versus distance, h, from normal (green) and cancerous (red) cell bodies. Cancerous cells show significantly different force behavior compared to normal cells (highlighted by the circle). Data were collected in force-volume mode with a Dimension 3100 AFM with an NPXY100Z25A scanner from nPoint. Image adapted from Iyer et al; Nature […]
