Choosing the right nanopositioning system for your application requires an understanding of the resolution, accuracy and range required, in addition to cost and reliability. Increasingly, dynamic issues dominate applications, with requirements for real-time/high-dynamic applications.
UVAC versions of the Queensgate Series NanoSensors and our DPT-D and DPT-E ranges of Digital Piezo Actuators are widely used in Synchrotrons and Beamline applications.
The NC Nanosensor capacitive sensor series, has been specially developed to meet the requirements of partial accelerators. Originally developed for magnet positioning inside vacuum, it offers exceptional features.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has a long standing collaboration with Queensgate Instruments in the area of provision of metrology for nanopositioning. NPL and Queensgate recently completed an Innovate UK project in which NPL developed optical interferometry to enable Queensgate to verify the performance of the next generation of its nanopositioning stages.
