NPS-Z-15H Ultra Low Drift Hollow 15 Micron Stage

NPS-Z-15H Ultra Low Drift Hollow 15 Micron Stage

The NPS-Z-15H Ultra Low Drift Hollow 15 Micron Stage is a piezo scanned flexure guided stage with integrated capacitance position sensor. This stage has been specifically designed with a hollow core, ideal for carrying a sample tip or optical fiber into the heart of any high-resolution microscope system.

It features a front reference surface to allow integration with the NPS-XY-100A providing three axis positioning control and is capable of sub-nanometer resolution and reproducibility. This stage has been designed to have extremely low angular deviation as it scans. A hollow center means it is ideal for use in near field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM).

A optional fiber chuck is also available. It features a front reference surface to allow integration with the NPS-XY-100A providing three axis positioning control. For these applications see also the NPS-Z-15A and the NPS-Z15B.
