Mad City Labs Nano-SP30 positioning system is particularly suited for nano-indentation and nano-manipulation applications. It is a single axis integrated positioning system combining the advantages of stepper driven motion with piezo precision. For coarse approaches, the Nano-SP30 offers 25 mm of travel with a step size of 95 nm. High resolution (<0.1 nm) positioning over 30 microns is achieved via the piezo driven stage. The system can be mounted vertically or horizontally and has been designed to be compatible with vibration isolation tables and optical fixturing. It is equipped with high resolution position sensors with real time read back and closed loop control enabled for the piezo component. In addition feedback from external sensors (such as force sensors) can be accepted by the Companys USB enabled controller, giving the user high versatility for many demanding nano-metrology applications.
