PHYSIK Instrumente (PI) has unveiled a long-travel piezo scanning and nanomanipulation system, available exclusively through Warsash Scientific .
It offers integrated capacitive feedback and closed-loop control that boost linearity by up to three orders of magnitude over conventional stages.
The P-563.3CD PIMars provides 300 x 300 x 300µm travel in the X-Y-Z axes, with nanometer resolution.
It has a 66-mm2 clear aperture and a parallel kinematics design that features only one moving part. Response is in the millisecond range.
Available versions include ultra-high-vacuum, invar, superinvar and titanium.
