Summary MIPOS series

The piezo focus lens positioner series MIPOS is made for high precision and accurate micro lens movement. The z-axis actuating system for a precise piezo objective positioning is made for application like single photon microscopy, laser scanning microscopy, confocal microscopy - in general - for all kind of super resolution microscopy. The piezo lens positioner are able to move the micro objective lens also with an unique position repeatability in sub nanometer range. The piezo system react immediately if the control signal is changed. This offer an high speed and high dynamical performance. Therefore the piezo focus z-axis positioner also call as a scanner system for autofocus or other microscopy applications.

The piezo lens positioner series MIPOS can be used for microscope upgrade. Via a set of threading adapters the series MIPOS can used with all standard microscopes. Independent if the microscope is made for standard or inverted microscopy application.

Flex Adapter and Lens Flex Adapter thread ring into the microscope and mount the MIPOS on this ring with a clamping screw. Because of the small size of piezo focus lens positioner MIPOS 20 and piezo objective positioner MIPOS 100, no other threads beside the MIPOS are blocked. A special version enables you to work in the upside down (UD) position on inverted microscopes. All standard threads for Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Olympus etc. are available for the top and bottom sides of the MIPOS system.

Technical Principal:
A piezoelectric actuator is mounted in a unique lever transmission design of flexure hinges. The small motion of the actuator, caused by an analog control signal, is transferred to a special point. The sophisticated monolithic guidance design of the solid flexure hinges means the trajectory is free of mechanical play and friction - a feature of all Piezosystem Jena stages.

Due to this technology, the motion is parallel to the optical beam. The resolution is very high and, in practice, only limited by the voltage noise of the power supply which is why piezosystem jena can only guarantee high accuracy by using piezosystem jena electronics. For details on recommended electronics please see the chapter "electronics" on this web page. All systems of the MIPOS series can be equipped with an integrated positioning feedback sensor to check and control the high accuracy of these nanopositioning systems.

Recommended controller unit for MIPOS 20 up to 500: NV 40/1CLE
