Positioning for Microscope Objectives - piezosystem jena's MIPOS R 120

For Microscopy applications using multiple lenses in fast alternation, piezosystem jena developed a very special MIPOS model: The MIPOS R120. This piezo stage positions the whole lens revolver. Users can easily switch between objectives without losing focus on the part of the probe that is examined. This significantly increases inspection and analysis times and spares the user the time-consuming positioning of individual lenses.

The piezo objective positioner MIPOS R120 offers motion up to 150 µm and resolution in the sub-nanometer range. Objective revolvers up to 5 kg can be mounted onto the stage. For ensuring highly parallel motion, piezosystem jena is using a specialized parallelogram construction design. Here, the outside hinges of the stage are displaced linearly to not interrupt the direction of the optical axis. The MIPOS R120 also has an additional preload that increases its dynamic. 

Optionally, the piezo stage can be outfitted with position sensors. 

Characteristics:

  • 150 µm focusing range
  • Precise movement of the lens revolver
  • High resonant frequence
  • Sustainability of up to 5 kg
  • Optional: integrated positioning sensor
  • Different attachments for microscopes from different manufacturers
  • direct integration into microscope possible 

Applications:

  • Surface analysis
  • Semiconductor equipment
  • Interferometry
  • Biotechnology (e.g. cell inspection)
  • Ray focusing for print processes

The MIPOS R 120 serves for the fine focusing and positioning of microscope objectives. The MIPOS R 120 was especially developed for the positioning of a complete lens revolver of a microscope. It is possible to focus probes with a sub nanometer precision. Due to the well proven parallelogram principle of Piezosystem Jena and an integrated preload, a highly parallel movement is guaranteed without influencing the optical axis. Therefore rapid and exact movements can be operated with a short rise time.

Special highlight of the MIPOS R 120 is that the operator can switch between the lenses of the objective revolver without changing the set-up, and without losing the focus on the probe. This saves the user a significant amount of time.

The MIPOS R 120 provides a positioning range of up to 150 µm and can bear an objective revolver with a total mass of up to 5 kg.

Optionally, special solutions for the integration of the MIPOS R 120 in the microscope main body, arm, base etc. can also be offered.

Adapter plates for the mounting of the MIPOS R 120 to your existing assembly are easily installed.
