Press release from: piezosystem jena GmbH

Focal Point Inc. (Boise, ID) and Piezosystem Jena, Inc. (Hopedale, MA) announced a new partnership to deliver turnkey autofocus systems for high speed metrology and biological imaging applications. “Focal Point’s extensive experience in semiconductor and printing technology applications nicely complements our knowledge of the super-resolution microscopy field. Bringing both technologies together will open up new possibilites in test, measurement and biological research.”, said Jim Litynski, CEO of Piezosystem Jena, Inc.
The effects of thermal drift on systems are becoming increasingly important since the advent of super-resolution microscopes and the introduction of complex imaging techniques for biology. Also, direct-write optical processing is an expanding field that is making inroads into more traditional photolithography methods. Both applications require nanometer-scale stability between sample and lens. “We fill a need in the market right now for very robust systems insensitive to tilt and diffraction effects often common in industrial settings and we will be releasing even more dramatic improvements in focus measurement and control technology in the near future—stay tuned for exciting new developments.”, said Dan Marshall, CTO of Focal Point.

piezosystem jena is a world leading company in the development, design and engineering of piezo, piezo electrical actuator based positioning systems for micro- andnanopositioning and nano-automation. In addition to thepositioning stages, the company also offers optical fiber switches as well as the corresponding electronics.

Objective Positioners Adapted To Meet Your Needs For Industrial Applications
piezosystem jena has extended the objective positioner series MIPOS with two new industry products. Typically objective positioners are firmly mounted directly onto a microscope. Piezosystem also introduces two new systems, which can be screwed on a machine or rail. MIPOS 140: Most installed lens positioners require an undesired extension to the optical axis. The distance between the lens and the sample is shortened. This can lead to collisions between the optics and the
Incremental Trigger Function
Trigger signals dependent on the position of the stage Digital piezo-controllers from piezosystem jena (d-Drive and d-Drivepro) offer flexible control for customized systems such as cameras, illumination systems, optical shutters or external measuring systems. Now, piezosystem jena can offer a comfortable trigger function. Trigger signals can be generated dependent on the position of the stage: • Rising edge • Falling edge • On both edges in the direction of movement An additional function sends out a trigger
New Product-Catalog from piezosystem jena
Positioning Solutions with Sub-Nanometer-Precision; Movements up to Multiple Centimeters/ Inches piezosystem jena introduces its brand-new catalog! To offer you complete systems for your needs, piezosystem jena has engineered and produced a NEW series of Motion Control Stages and High-Power Piezo-Composite Actuators. The new catalog does not only show our proven, ultra-precise nanopositioning piezo stages for positioning with sub-nanometer accuracy and their appropriate controllers; it also incorporates our powerful Piezo-Composite Actuators and their
Beam Tracking with Mirror Tip- and Tilting Piezostage PKS1
In biology applications a laser beam is used for cell stimulation. First the laser beam is redirected onto 2 mirrors then directed to the cells. An important requirement, to hold the laser beam onto the cell is very difficult to achieve due to thermal effects or external vibration. The position of the laser beam needs to be controlled in real-time to track the motion of the cell. For this task a
