  1. PI Launches 2nd Generation PInano® Piezo Stage For SR Microscopy
    11/15/2016

    PI has recently released a 2nd generation of its successful PInano® product line of high resolution XY/XYZ multi-axis positioning systems. The digital servo piezo controller offers the advantage of higher linearity, simple operation, and easy access to advanced features in comparison to conventional analog piezo controllers. It provides responsive real-time tracking, and it supports PI's unique Fast Focus & Freeze capability, where the unit can be bumplessly switched from external (focus) sensor to internal (capacitive, SGS or piezoresistive) sensor, allowing precise, calibrated, stable motions with respect to the focal plane.
