    PiezoMike Linear Actuators is comprised of multiple lines of actuators with high stability and high holding forces that are cost-effective and easy to integrate. The different kinds of actuators include closed loop, fast linear with PIShift Piezomotor, and vacuum compatible actuators that are designed to efficiently convert the rotational motion of low voltage motors into linear motion.

  2. Beamline Instrumentation Group Brochure

    PI’s Beamline Instrumentation Group of physicists and engineers has developed a wide range of high-performance single- and multi-axis positioning products, classical or non-magnetic, and UHV or EUV compatible, for scientific research in synchrotron and accelerator research facilities.

  3. From Patterned Wafer To Packaged Device: Optical Alignment For Packaging and Test In SiP

    As photonic and electronic devices began to converge, bandwidth, efficiency, and functionality improved significantly. On the flip side, testing and packaging these silicon photonic (SiP) devices has proven to be a challenge. Testing conventional microcircuits can be done through physical contact, conventional positioning control devices, and visual inspection. On the other hand, photonic devices require non-contact and nanoscale alignment between the hybrid device under test and a probe fiber or other element. And we haven’t even begun discussing the complications involved in packaging such devices.

  7. The Advantages Of Piezo-Based Scanning Systems For High-Performance Microscopes

    Classical microscopic methods are no longer sufficient in terms of optical resolution or information content. To obtain more extensive and accurate measurement data of a sample, it is now possible to combine different microscopic methods. Combining those methods, however, is very demanding on the positioning system. This article outlines the advantages of using piezo-based scanning stages to ensure image position resolution and accuracy.

  8. Piezo-Based Nanopositioning For Ophthalmology

    Several laser methods have emerged to influence the curvature of the cornea to correct visual acuity. All have one decisive factor in common: laser beam control and focusing that requires high-precision positioning. Piezo-based solutions are well suited to this application, providing the necessary precision, speed, and reliability, as well as compact designs that can be easily integrated into today's laser systems.
