PI was started at an optics institute more than a half a century ago. Working with scientific and research customers at the cutting edge of technology has been in PI’s DNA right from the start. Keeping close relations with academia makes sure PI keeps its finger on the pulse of science and development and prepared to have the right solutions for future applications.
A quick look at Google Scholar shows hundreds of recent scientific papers where PI motion equipment and piezoelectric nanopositioning stages made a difference to the outcome of the research.
A few examples of PI’s involvement with university and government funded research are below:
