A nanopositioning device can move an object in one, two, three, or more dimensions. A typical range in each dimension is 10um to 200um with a resolution of 1nm, or 5 atoms of Carbon. Nanopositioning devices are widely applied in microscopy, optics, semiconductor manufacturing and life sciences. This project is developing new nanopositioning devices, sensors, amplifiers, and control systems to increase the bandwidth and precision of piezoelectric nanopositioning stages.
