Subnanometre positioning in a vacuum – the NC Nanosensor capacitive sensor series

The NC NanosensorTM capacitive sensor series, has been specially developed to meet the requirements of partial accelerators. The NCG-1-AL-UHV Capacitive Sensors are the longest range sensors in the Queensgate range. Designed for high resolution positioning in harsh environments. The NanoSensors are non-heating and maintain their zero position when powered down. Originally developed for magnet positioning inside vacuum, it offers […]

Astronomy and space science nanopositioning solutions

Space and space challenges Over the decades, Queensgate Instruments has undertaken various one-off space-borne projects as subcontractor and in collaboration with companies working for NASA and ESA. These included precision capacitance micrometers used in the “force
moment sensor”, part of the robot-arm mechanisms used on the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle.
The capacitive sensing systems […]

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) – Testing nanopositioning devices for Queensgate

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. Queensgate’s nanopositioning devices […]
