Microscope lens positioning system

Piezosystem jena's (Jena, Germany) lens positioning system for standard and inverted microscopes is available in two versions: The nanoMIPOS 400 is designed for use with closed-loop electronics (which assures high repeatability) and the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP was developed for use in closed-loop systems. Both versions travel in open-loop operation up to 400 microns and in closed-loop operation to 320 microns. The positioner's sub-nanometer resolution is limited only by the noise of the electronics.

The actuator promises excellent guidance and an extremely high resonant frequency. The stage can be loaded with up to 1 kg of mass with lenses, and is adaptable to almost all lens threads.

Lens positioning system - nano MIPOS 400


piezosystem jena, internationally recognized manufacturer of micro and nano positioning devices, offers the nanoMIPOS 400 lens positioner in its product range.

Two different versions of the lens positioner are available. The nanoMIPOS 400 is for use with closed-loop electronics and the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP was developed for use in closed-loop systems.

The nano MIPOS offers travel in open-loop operation of up to 400 µm and in closed-loop operation travel of
320 µm can be reached. The resolution of the positioner is in the sub-nanometer range and is only limited by the noise of the electronics used.

The singular design of the actuator, based on the bidirectional nanoX principle, gives the nanoMIPOS 400 excellent guidance properties as well as an extremely high resonant frequency. A high repeatability can be guaranteed with the use of closed-loop electronics.

Furthermore, the nanoMIPOS 400 can be used with standard microscopes as well as inversed microscopy. The stage can be loaded with up to 1 kg of mass with lenses, and is adaptable to almost all lens threads.

When combined with the electronics offered by piezosystem jena, the system meets the highest requirements in stability, linearity, and accuracy.
