Nanopositioning using standing wave piezoelectric motors

This article is brought to you by: 

In photonics motion control applications, how do you combine speed with nanometric precision and unlimited travel? These seemingly conflicting requirements are uniquely addressed by ultrasonic, standing-wave, direct-drive piezoelectric motors. This technology provides unlimited linear or rotary motion of a ceramic tip that transfers drive to a target, operating in a manner similar to a DC servo motor but with much higher resolution, an order-of-magnitude higher speed and a wider dynamic range.
