Microscopy and Imaging Processes

Imaging processes increase efficiency across a number of fields, ranging from medical engineering to pharmaceutical research and manufacturing of semiconductors. Familiar methods from optical metrology such as interferometry or microscopy are often applied to automated processes. Ultrasonic and magnetic resonance techniques are ideal for a variety of visualization tasks. They all require fast and precise drive systems, which depending on the application, must often also be as compact as possible or operate reliably even in strong magnetic fields. Piezoelectric drives, scanners and positioning systems are a safe bet here.
