Optical Axis Nanopositioning System Offers 5X more Travel: New Z-Axis Positioner from PI

High precision positioning of microscope objectives along the optical axis has just made a giant leap forward: While piezo actuation has always been the undisputed choice in optical positioning when dynamics and accuracy matter most, some applications could have benefitted from more travel range. A new design principle developed by PI (Physik Instrumente) now extends the positioning range to 2 mm while maintaining very short settling times on the order of 20 milliseconds.
