Two Axis Ultra-Fast Laser Beam Steering Device Piezo Tip/Tilt Platforms

  • ±1mrad θX and θY Tilt Range
  • For Mirrors to 50 mm Ø
  • Sub-µrad Resolution
  • Closed Loop Versions
  • Differential Design for Excellent Temperature Stability

S-330 are ultra-fast, high precision laser beam steering mirror platforms based on high speed piezo drives. These compact tilt stage units provide high resolution, high repeatability, and highly dynamic angular movements of the top platform in two orthogonal axes. The tilt angle range is ±1mrad (each axes) with sub-µrad resolution, longer tilt range models are available. Closed loop servo control feedback versions provide the highest accuracy and repeatability and precision. S-330 laser beam steering systems are designed for laser mirrors up to 50 mm diameter and have outstanding angular stability over a wide temperature range. To match the CTE of Zerodur glass, the high-performance S-330 mirror tilters are available with an Invar top platform.

For larger tip/tilt angles, voice coil steering mirrors are also available.

Working principle:
S-330 Tilt Platforms are equipped with two pairs of ultra-reliable multilayer piezoelectric linear drives (0 to 100 V) operating in push/pull mode. The stainless steel case is equipped with an integrated, FEA (Finite Element Analysis) modeled circular flexure featuring zero stiction/friction and exceptional guiding precision.

In open loop operation, the platform angle roughly corresponds to the drive voltage. The open loop model is ideal for applications where the position is controlled by an external loop based on data provided by a sensor (e.g., quad cell, CCD chip, ...).

The closed loop tip/tilt stage version is equipped with two pairs (one per axis) of Strain Gage sensors operated in a bridge circuit for ultra-high resolution and angular stability. They provide sub-µrad resolution and repeatability (with PI control electronics).
