Active Optics / Piezo Steering Mirrors Introduction
PI offers a wide range of ultra-fast piezo-driven piezo tip/tilt platforms and scanners (steering mirrors, beam deflectors, phase shifters) specially designed for active and adaptive optics applications in industry and research.
Piezo-drives are faster than voice-coils, galvos and other actuators and offer higher resolution. The PI systems can perform optical beam steering over ranges of up to 100 mrad, have extremely low response times (milliseconds to microseconds) and resolutions in the nanoradian range. They are ideal for dynamic operation (e.g. tracking, scanning, drift and vibration cancellation) as well as static positioning of optics and samples.
