Monolithic Stage

We design and produce monolithic stages for ultra-fine resolution. The stages are suitable for UHV and angular resolution as low as 0.01 arcsec (50 nrad). The stages are custom made to match your requirements for resolution, size and load.

JJ X-Ray has developed theta rotation and a chi rotation based on a stainless steel monolithic stage. The central part of the monolithic stage is rotated relative to the exterior part via thin-walled connections. In order to increase the resolution, the piezo actuator acts on a flexible lever arm that reduces the resolution by a factor of 4. The angular range of the stages is 1 mrad and the load capacity is 1-10 kg.

We are able to design and produce the specific stages that will suit your requirements.

You will find more details about the individual stages by clicking on the individual stages in the menu to your left.
