The NPXY50-286 nanopositioning stage from nPoint is a piezo driven, flexure guided stage, designed for high speed and sub nanometer precision. The stage has a relatively small footprint (60mm X 60mm X 25mm) for space constrained areas. WIth a position noise of 0.2nm the NPXY50-286 provides the accuracy necessary for today's advanced applications. When paired with the LC.402 DSP controller, the system provides closed-loop capability via capacitive sensors. The NPXY50-386 has travel of 50Ám in both the X and Y axis and is fitted with a 20mm aperture creating a great deal of flexibility for incorporation in optics and nanotechnology systems. A resonant frequency of 1400Hz allows for scanning at high speed and settling times less than 4ms.
As the latest addition to nPoint's piezo stage offering the NPXY50-286 can be used in a variety of different areas including research, manufacturing, or as an OEM system component.
Application examples include: near-field scanning optical microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, optical microscopy, lithography, nanometer-scale manipulation, metrology, and high-speed scanning.
