Advances In Piezo Actuation: Flexure Drives, Ultrasonics, And Piezo-Walk Linear Motors
By Scott Jordan and Stefan Vorndran, PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.
Piezoelectric actuation is the foundation for a multitude of mission-critical high-technology applications, from semiconductor manufacturing to atomic-force microscopy, from optical tweezers to sub-pixel imaging, from bore-sight systems to genomic sequencing and medical devices.

Product Focus

High-Performance, High-Speed Camera System
The most demanding high-speed imaging applications require a balance of high frame rate, image resolution, dynamic range, and light sensitivity. Photron's FASTCAM SA-X high-speed camera system has been designed to provide a careful balance of all these sometimes-conflicting requirements. This high-speed camera can record rates up to 12,500 fps at megapixel image resolution with 12-bit ADC and high image quality.

Anacapa SWIR 640A Datasheet
Nova Sensor's Anacapa™ SWIR 640A is the smallest, highest frame rate, fully integrated off-the-shelf SWIR 640x512 camera available. This compact, high-performance infrared camera system has excellent sensitivity and image quality making it the ideal solution for applications including low light imaging for man-portable and unmanned vehicle payloads, low-power security and surveillance products, spectroscopy, industrial automation and inspection, and more.

Datasheet: High-Power, 30-Die, NIR LED Array
Opto Diode's high-power, 30-Die, NIR LED delivers more efficient operation and higher power with a narrow beam angle of 30 degrees. The device has a peak wavelength of 850 nm (min. 840 nm and max. 865 nm) and a total optical power output of 16 watts. Ideal for night vision systems and skin therapy applications, Opto Diode's NIR light-emitting-diode array is available for shipping in OEM quantities.

Datasheet: Ultra-Thin X-Axis Steel Stages
OptoSigma's ultra-thin x-axis stages have a total height of only 1 cm. They are 45% thinner and 30% lighter than our standard extended contact steel stages, and up to 60% thinner than equivalent aluminum stages.
