  2. Performance Of Air Bearing Stages

    Air bearing systems provide significantly higher geometric performance than most common guiding systems used in precision positioning stages. This application note discusses several performance aspects of air bearing stages, and which performance factor is ideal for the desired application.

  3. Miniature Precision Positioning Stages Catalog

    The new Miniature Precision Positioning Stages Catalog from PI presents over 200 models of miniature translation and rotation stages of various sizes, motion ranges, and drive concepts. Some of these models include the servo/stepper, piezo ultrasonic/inertia, linear, voice coil, air bearings, crossed rollers, and piezo flexures. These products can be used for semiconductor, photonics, bio-nanotechnology, metrology, microscopy, micro-manipulation, and cleanroom applications.

  8. 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.
