Teem Photonics chooses PI's NanoCube for 3D structuring applications
15 February 2011
The French passively Q-switched microchip laser specialist, Teem Photonics has chosen PI's P-611 NanoCube piezo stage - a high-precision, multi-axis piezo nanopositioning system - for its new µFab3D microfabrication system. Typically used in microfluidics, cell biology and the manufacture of photonic crystal structures in micro-optics, the µFab3D system uses two-photon absorption to produce 3D polymer, protein, metal or other biomaterials microstructures.
The integration of the NanoCube into the µFab3D system enables precise alignment of laser and machining points, achieving resolution of 200nm at speeds of up to 100µm/s, for homogenous, high quality results.
Measuring just 44mm, the easy-to-integrate, piezo actuator driven P-611 NanoCube is suitable for travel ranges up to 100 x 100 x 100µm and can achieve resolution of up to 0.2nm, with millisecond response times. The basic, open-loop model is designed for applications where fast response and very high resolution are essential, but absolute positioning is not critical, while the closed-loop version is ideal for applications requiring both high accuracy and positioning precision.
The compact P-611 NanoCube systems are equipped with preloaded PICMA high performance piezo actuators, integrated into a frictionless flexure guiding system. Actuators, guides and sensors are maintenance-free and not subject to wear, offering long lifetime and high reliability.
