A Better Way to Focus: Linear Motor Focusing Stage Provides Superior Alternative to Piezo Actuators 22 Mar

Dover Motion

This white paper addresses high performance Z axis focusing for automated microscopy, along with some recent innovations in this space. Historically, piezo driven actuators have been used for these applications, but a Piezo actuator has very distinct limitations. Direct drive linear motor stages provide many advantages when compared to piezo nanopositioners. This whitepaper discusses both approaches to Z focusing motion.
