UHV Nanopositioning December 2015

Capacitive sensors perform poorly in vacuum, with performance degrading up to 60% per meter of cable length. Mad City Labs PicoQ® sensor performance does not degrade in vacuum. Our extensive and practical knowledgebase, combined with proprietary PicoQ® sensor technology, uniquely places us  to provide a standard product line of UHV nanopositioners and micropositioners and develop customized solutions with the highest performance characteristics.
