High Resolution Data Acquisition for Piezo Stages

In order to maximize scanning speed for photonics applications, it is often important to acquire recordings of nanopositoning stage sensor data synchronized with data collected from external sensors or detectors.  The LC.400 series of controllers can record up to 8 streams of internal data simultaneously, including voltage signals measured via the controller front panel BNC analog […]

Raster Scanning Techniques for Photonics Applications

The nPoint LC.400 series of controllers have several internal functions for use with raster scanning.  A traditional raster scan can be generated via the simple Raster Scanning GUI used in the traditional raster scan below. Additional raster scanning patterns can be generated via the arbitrary scan capability of the controller. This provides complete flexibility for […]

Trajectory Generation with Nanopositioning Systems

Trajectory Generation is the latest feature on nPoint’s nPControl software environment for the LC.400 Series Nanopositioning Controllers. The trajectory generation interface allows a user to scan through up to 500 position coordinates, with velocity and dwell time specified individually for each positioning event. These coordinates are downloaded to the controller for operation. The trajectory generation […]
