Product Spotlight April: PZS Piezo-Slit/Shutter
The PZS by piezosystem jena was one of the first piezo slit systems worldwide. These slits/shutters are used in laser beam collimation, spectroscopy and other related applications. Today the PZS series consists of several models optimized for different purposes and requirements.

For synchronous travel, the slit edges of the PZS models are driven by a single piezo actuator. These edges are arranged within a parallelogram design to ensure highly parallel and symmetrical motion. Slit-openings are available up to 1500 µm. However, individual customization can be made here. The solid state flexure hinges of the slit system are constructed out of stainless steel or, upon request, INVAR. There are also vacuum compatible versions and versions with position feedback sensors (strain gauge) available. Depending on your requirements, you also have the choice between several materials for the individual blades: stainless steel, INVAR or silicon.
For optimal control of the PZS models there are several viable options. To learn which piezo controller is the optimal choice for you, please contact our technical sales team.
