Z-Axis Piezo Nanopositioners for Extreme Precision Applications

Aerotech QNP-Z series piezo nanopositioning stage

 

AerotecQNP-Z series piezo nanopositioning stages join Aerotech’s growing piezo stage family that includes the QNP-L linear and QNP-XY stages. The QNP-Z series provides the resolution, linearity, repeatability, and high dynamics required for the most demanding applications from microscopy to optics alignment. With resolution to 0.15 nm, linearity to 0.007%, and repeatability to 1 nm, nanometer-level precision is assured.

Scanning probe microscopy with piezo stages and capacitive nanometrology sensors improves nano-indentation and materials testing systems

Scanning probe microscopy with piezo stages and capacitive nanometrology sensors improves nano-indentation and materials testing

Nanoindentation is derived from the classical hardness test but is carried out on a much smaller scale. It can be used to determine the hardness of thin layers as well as material properties such as elasticity, stiffness, plasticity, and tensile strength, or fracture toughness of small objects and microsystems in fields such as biotechnology. These measurements involve applying a small force to a sample using a sharp probe and measuring the resultant penetration depth. The measured value is used to calculate the contact area and hence the particular property of the sample material.
