How Active Alignment Technology Speeds Up Manufacturing Of Optical Systems

Precision positioning and motion control has vaulted forward in broadly beneficial ways. For example, submicron-resolution linear encoders now are affordably integrated into mechanisms as large as gantries and as small as matchbook-sized nanopositioners. New motor concepts abound, ranging from the familiar DC servo, stepper, and linear motors to include novel technologies like high-speed, ultra-stable resonant piezomotors and diminutive stick-slip stages with nanoscale positionability.
