Space can be a challenging environment – but not for piezo actuators. Our fast-steering mirror drive technology is immune to magnetic influences and is radiation tolerant – a perfect solution for satellites and space vehicles. The piezosystem jena compact and lightweight mirror positioning products are being space qualified for readiness in next generation optical communication terminals.
Wafer production processes such as stealth dicing, lithography, doping, implanting and planarization makes precise positioning of bigger substrates a must. Our 12” z-axis wafer positioning system offers precise hold and repeat positioning for steady processes in production and process control. Our 3-axis positioning system offers movements free of play in XYZ with up to 100 μm travel range, which is ideally suited for demanding AFM and scanning applications.
Established in 1991, piezosystem jena offers extensive knowledge and in-depth technical expertise in the application of piezo technology, nano-positioning tasks, and in the design of piezo flexure stages and piezo actuator systems. In addition to our extensive catalog of COTS products, we offer customized solutions and consultation to fit your unique applications. The partnerships we form with our clientele are long-lasting and mutually beneficial.
The alignment of laser beams, positioning of microscope objectives, and fine adjustment of samples demands on precise and rapid movements. Based on the inverse piezoelectric effect, products by piezosystem jena offer unique technical characteristics compared to other solutions on the market including sub-nanometer resolutions, instantaneous positioning, and high reliability. Available in open loop and closed loop configurations, our products can fulfill even the most challenging positioning tasks in the photonics industry.

Piezo Fast Steering Mirrors
Our piezo tip-tilt actuators are fast, compact, lightweight and above all reliable. By virtue of their unique stiff design, the piezosystem jena beam steering actuators have instantaneous responses, short settling times and can oscillate in the kHz range.
A piezo actuator is a high precision ceramic actuator that converts electrical energy into linear expansion. These solid-state actuators are controlled using inverse piezoelectric technology and offer high speed and force motion with sub-nanometer resolution.
Fiber switches are the perfect solution to analyze light sources with only one spectrometer. Our fiber switches offer up to 9 channels which can be switched within milliseconds. Controlled by piezo actuators, our fiber switches have no internal optical components and therefore avoid any form of optical aberration.
Analyzing a large object in precise detail has traditionally been a challenge. Typically positioning systems have either been highly accurate for small motions, or fast for larger motions – but not both. Users had to make a compromise between one or the other form of motion.
