New NPZ100-403 Piezo Stage from nPoint Inc.
The NPXY100-403 piezo stage is the newest addition to nPoint’s nanopositioning lineup. This stage is designed for applications where high speed is necessary while carrying heavier loads.
The NPZ100-403 nanopositioner is a piezo driven, flexure guided stage, designed for high speed and nanometer precision. Having a position noise of 0.5nm with capacitive sensors and 3nm with strain gauges, this system provides the accuracy necessary for today’s advanced applications. This piezo stage can be paired with the LC.400 series DSP controllers for closed-loop capability. It has a travel of 100µm in the Z axis and can also be used in X and Y configurations. A resonant frequency of 1000Hz allows for fast scanning and settling times less than 3 milliseconds. The stage has high stiffness for greater resonant frequencies, even with heavy loads. This nanopositioner can be configured to hold many optics and samples, including large microscope objectives.
As the latest addition to nPoint’s piezo stage offering, the NPZ100-403 can be used in a variety of areas including research, manufacturing, and as an OEM system component.
Application examples include: optical microscopy, lithography, nanometer-scale manipulation, metrology, materials testing, and optical fiber alignment.
