Description

The PSF-3 nano-manipulator works by converting the rotary motion of an advanced piezoelectric motor (fitted onto each axis of the nano-manipulator) into linear motion. A combination of high torque, variable speed and high angular resolution enables the piezoelectric motor to be used in either continuous or stepper mode. These characteristics facilitate a smooth transition, without degradation in intrinsic performance, from an angular step of less than 5 μrad to continuous motion, and a range of angular velocities, from 4 μrad/sec up to 60 rev/min. This translates into a linear resolution of 0.4 nm and a linear range of velocities from 0.5 nm/sec to 500 μm/sec for each axis of the PSF-3. Additional benefits of the PSF-3 design include the elimination of heat dissipation, ultra-low electrical noise and low supply voltage (12 VDC), which together make the PSF-3 ideal for very sensitive applications (e.g. delicate electrophysiological recordings).

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

LILEYA‘s PSF-3 is a state of the art 3-axis nano-manipulator system (fig.1), whose combination of extremely high resolution (0.4 nm), long term stability (drift less than 2 nm/hour @20°C) and long travel (10 mm) is unprecedented in the field. At the heart of the design is an advanced piezoelectric rotary motor PM-20R (www.piezomotor.com.ua ), programmable joystick controller (fig.2). When the motor is deenergized, it provides an automatic solid brake on movement, with almost undetectable backlash and drift. The design of the PSF-3 makes it ideal for a variety of biomedical, microelectronic and optical applications.
