Overview: 

Two dimensional electromechanical positioning of samples of the order of nano meters.

Key Features: 

  • Bimorph is used to achieve planar two-dimensional motion.
  • The Nano-positioner is specially designed to precisely position samples under high resolution microscopes.
  • No mechanical access is required to operate this device.
  • Resolution of positioner is 50 nano meters in both X & Y directions.
  • Nano-positioner’s span area is lcmX lcm.
  • This device is quite compact in size [2.5cmx2.5cmxlcm] and ultra light weight (less than 30 grams).

Applications: 

  • It can be used in vacuum, at cryogenic temperatures in various applications like optical microscope, SPM, SEM, FIB, fiber positioned in optics.
  • The device can be used in high magnetic fields and temperature range of operation is -270 °C to 45 °C.
