PI L.P. (Auburn, MA) offers the P-714 high-speed XY-nanopositioning and scanning stages that are piezo-driven and feature a resonant frequency of 2.2 kHz for sub-millisecond response. Integrated position sensors and piezoelectric drives provide sub-nanometer resolution.

The stages measure 45 × 45 × 6 mm, enabling integration into instrumentation. Applications include transmitted-light applications such as microscopy, and scanning, alignment, imaging and resolution enhancement, microscopy, and nanopositioning.
