Noliac provides the precision for your nanopositioning system

Nanopositioning systems often rely on piezoelectric actuators to ensure the very fine positioning with sub-nanometer resolution. This is the case in high frequency nanopositioning, where a small displacement amplitude with a fast response is required. How high frequency nanopositioning works High frequency nanopositioning employs piezoelectric actuators with direct action. This means, that the actuator is directly pushing the platform without any conversion or amplification mechanism, which would drag the first resonance down.
