P-562.6CD Tip-Tilt + XYZ + Rot-Z Piezo Flexure Stage: 6-Axis Nanopositioning System

6-Axis Piezo Flexure Stage
  • 6 Motion Axes: Tip/Tilt, XYZ + Rot-Z
  • 1 mrad Tilt Angle, to 200 µm Linear Range
  • UHV Versions to 10-9 hPa
  • Parallel Kinematics / Metrology for Enhanced Responsiveness & Precision
  • Capacitive Feedback for Highest Linearity / Stability
  • Frictionless, High-Precision Flexure Guiding System
  • Excellent Scan-Flatness
  • 66x66mm Aperture
  • Outstanding Lifetime Due to PICMA® Piezo Actuators

This multi-axis piezo nanopositioning stage is one of the most advanced piezo systems currently available. Its parallel-kinematic design, where all piezo flexure drives act on the same moving platform, and sophisticated digital control algorithms (see E-712 digital piezo controller) make it possible to achieve highly precise coordinated motion in all degrees of freedom, with straightness & flatness in the low nanometer range.
