Product Description

The Nano-MTA Series are single axis and two axis piezo nanopositioning mirror tip/tilt actuators. With nanoradian resolution, the Nano-MTA Series is ideal for applications involving laser beam steering, tracking, and scanning. Internal position sensors utilizing proprietary PicoQ® technology provide absolute, repeatable position measurement under closed loop control. The Nano-MTA Series is compatible with either the Nano-Drive® or Nano-Drive®85 controllers. Both controllers include sensor electronics, proportional integral feedback control, and 150V amplifiers. When used with the high power Nano-Drive®85 controller, the Nano-MTA Series is capable of continuous, high speed scans at 400 Hz and step response times down to 2 milliseconds.

Ultra Low Position Noise: Nano-MTA2 Position Noise Power Spectrum

Measured position noise of the Nano-MTA2 shows the system's exceptional stability.
