Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ Flexure Stage with Standard Manual Adjusters
- 200 nm resolution
- 2 mm travel per axis
- 4.5 kg load capacity
- Minimal arcuate displacement
- Orthogonal alignment grooves
- Ultra-stable patented† design XYZ flexure stage
The MDE120 flexure stage is fitted with standard manual adjusters and provides 200 nm of adjustment resolution with 2 mm of travel in each of the three axes.
The Elliot Gold™ series XYZ flexure stage is a development of the immensely popular original stage invented and patented† by Martock Design, now a subsidiary of Elliot Scientific. Flexure stages are ideal for high precision device manipulation.
Applications range from fibre launch systems for single-mode, multimode and polarisation maintaining fibres as well as waveguide alignment, through to the manipulation of microstructures in bioscience. The arcuate displacement (vertical displacement due to longitudinal flexure motion) is up to 4 times better than competing products.
The optical axis height of all accessories is 18 mm above the top plate, placing the optical axis 94 mm above the bottom of the stage.
