Super Resolution Microscopy

Super Resolution Microscopy

fast & precise alignment of optics and sample

Driven by the need for ever-increasing resolution, a multitude of microscopy applications require fast, yet highly accurate sample positioning. This is particularly true for target motion in optical imaging such as super resolution microscopy, topographical measurements, optical material analyses or in cell array investigation.

The relative and precise positioning of samples with respect to an objective or probe head such as an AFM cantilever is the key condition for reliable and reproducible measurement results.

attocube's solution

attocube´s customizable microscopy stages provide noiseless yet fast motion for an undisturbed working environment over up to a several centimeter travel range.

These piezo-based positioning devices offer the needed reliability, precision and repeatability for highly accurate microscopy applications. Monolithic xy-units and fully assembled xyz stacks optimize the stability and precision amongst the travelling axes and minimize the needed installation space. 



  • monolithic positioners
  • stackable positioners
  • repeatability < 50 nm
