Photonics is related to modern optics like quantum optics, opto-mechanics, electro-optics, optoelectronics and quantum electronics. With the term photonics, we refer to the particle properties of light, the potential of creating signal processing device technologies using photons, the practical application of optics, and an analogy to electronics.

Applications of photonics today can be found in many areas from technology used in everyday life to the most advanced science, e.g. light detection, telecommunication, lighting, metrology, spectroscopy, holography, medical science, (surgery, vision correction, endoscopy, health monitoring), military technology, laser material processing, visual art, bio-photonics, agriculture, robotics, scientific computing and consumer devices.

Nano-Positioning and Piezo-Actuators

Nanopositioning stage, controller, and software products can be combined to create a complete solution for demanding applications. We offer stages that are flexure guided piezo actuators designed to achieve ultra high resolution, high resonant frequencies, and minimize parasitic motion.
Piezo-Actuators are principally solid-state bodies, which are deforming when being charged electrically.
See our extensive portfolio.
