The Elliot Scientific June 2019 Newsletter: In this issue we welcome nPoint and their range of piezo-actuated nanopositioning flexure stages, and Microscope Heaters who do what it says on their tin – heat microscopes with fanless incubation systems. We also announce that our Optical Tweezer systems now come with Microsoft’s Windows 10, and that EXFO have launched the Optical Xplorer – the world’s first OFM. Plus Laser World of Photonics in Munich next week and a whole host of materials science and microscopy trade shows coming up next month.

Elliot Scientific is pleased to announce that it has been selected by nPoint, Inc. to be the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of their nanopositioning solutions.
nPoint specialises in piezo actuator driven flexure stages available in one, two or three axes of motion. In conjunction with their ultra-precision motion control scanners and controllers, users can achieve the highest levels of performance available in the marketplace. Typical application areas are:
Life Science / Microscopy – piezo stages provide accurate, fast, and repeatable motion that enable high-throughput data acquisition and processing for techniques such as super resolution microscopy, sample scanning, autofocus, and cell tracking.
Semiconductor / Data Storage – nanopositioners are used in production, development, and inspection of silicon wafers and hard disk recording heads.
Optics – high speed nanopositioners enable movement of an optic for a multitude of precision applications such as scanning, laser beam steering, phase shifting, dithering and focusing.
AFM / Materials Science – piezo stages have been traditionally used as closed-loop scanners for Atomic Force Microscopes, offering extremely low out-of-plane motion, no piezo drift, exceptional scanning linearity, and longer travel ranges.
Photonics Packaging / Communications – in fibre optics, nanopositioning stages have become critical for speedy and optimal alignment duties.
Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating nPoint technology at various UK trade events this year, and looks forward to enabling researchers and OEMs achieve significant benefits from incorporating nPoint systems within their applications.
