Product Spotlight May: PKS Mirror Tilting Systems

The fast adjustment of mirrors in complex optical setups without compromising precision is crucial. Often, there is only a millisecond window to adjust a mirror or a lens. For such applications, piezosystem jena developed the PKS series of mirror tilting platforms.

Unlike its similar sister tilting systems of the PSH series, the PKS models can be also adjusted manually by ±2°. The piezo-driven tilting range for fine adjustment is up to 1 mrad with a resolution of 2 nrad. Mirror of ½” and 1” can mounted onto the devices. Another special feature of the PKS systems is their high stiffness and therefore their high resonant frequency of 900 Hz. Like many of piezosystem jena’s products, the individual PKS models can be customized according to specific customer requirements, e.g. vacuum conditions.
