Product Description

The Nano-Z50HS is a single axis (Z-axis) piezo nanopositioning system designed to move a microscopy sample up to 50 microns at the fastest possible positioning speeds. The Nano-Z50HS is derived from the 3-axis, high speed, Nano-LPQ piezo nanopositioning system but contains only the Z-axis piezo mechanisms. The resulting compact size allows the Nano-Z50HS to easily retrofit onto existing microscopes or fit into custom experimental set- ups. Since the only moving part is the integated sample holder, moving mass is minimized. Sample holders for slides, coverslips, and petri dishes are available. Custom sample holders can also be provided. Internal position sensors utilizing proprietary PicoQ® technology provide absolute, repeatable position measurement with picometer resolution under closed loop control.
