Piezo LEGS® motors can be used for sequencing movements in micro array application, taking full advantage of their fast reaction and settling time plus their extreme micro-step resolution (<0.001 µm). In a closed loop x,y system, the motors make accurate and repeatable motion patterns on a sub-micron level, even taking nanometer-size steps in fast sequence. Applications for microarray movements are numerous; microarray sample analysis or high-detail image merging, for example.
Piezo LEGS® is also being used for high resolution focusing of optics in medical technology applications. The ability to scan through a sample in sub-micrometer layers is very useful for making detailed imaging of sample content.
