  4. The Advantages Of Piezo-Based Scanning Systems For High-Performance Microscopes
    10/1/2014

    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.

  5. Piezo-Based Nanopositioning For Ophthalmology
    4/2/2014

    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.
