ANPx312 Positioner Optimized for Ultra-High Stability Applications
Many cryogenic experiments such as super resolution microscopy or open-cavity QED are becoming increasingly complex. Frequently, multiple-axes nanopositioning systems are used in these setups. The increased weight however leads to lower resonance frequencies of the configuration and hence increased sensitivity to external vibrations.
attocube, technology leader for highly precise positioning solutions, introduces a solution to this challenge: The new, ultra stable ANPx312 piezo stage offers enhanced stiffness of up to 300% compared to similar cryogenic positioners leading to an unmatched resonance frequency of 4 kHz. As all attocube stages, it is compatible with other positioners to achieve multi-degree of freedom motion devices offering up to 6 movement axes. The ANPx312 is available in both open and closed loop version with integrated resistive encoders.
