How Active Alignment Technology Speeds Up Manufacturing Of Optical Systems

Fast-Active-Optical-Alignment_1000w-16-9

Over the span of forty years, the field of precision positioning and motion control has vaulted forward in broadly beneficial ways.  For example, submicron-resolution linear encoders, once available only in the costliest stages, are now 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 over many millimeters of travel.
