The NPXY60 piezo stages are the latest additions to nPoint’s nanopositioning lineup. These stages are designed for advanced research markets in need of UHV and non-magnetic positioning capabilities.
The NPXY60-258 and NPXY60Z20-257 are piezo driven, flexure guided stages, designed for high speed and nanometer precision. Position noise of 0.4nm in X and Y axis and 0.2nm in the Z, provide the accuracy necessary for today’s advanced applications. When paired with the LC.400 series DSP controllers, the system provides closed-loop capability via capacitive sensors. Both stages have a travel of 60µm in the X and Y axis and there is an optional Z with 20µm stroke. The 30mm aperture creates a great deal of flexibility, while a resonant frequency of 750Hz in XY and 2000Hz in Z, allows for fast scanning and settling times less than 5 ms. Both stages are designed to be UHV compatible and have non-magnetic properties, allowing researchers to test under specialized conditions.
