S-334 tip/tilt platforms are fast and compact units, providing precise angular movements of a mirror around two orthogonal axes. The tip/tilt range is 50 mrad with sub-µrad resolution. In closed-loop operation, highest stability and accuracy is available.Huge Tip/Tilt Ranges with Excellent Motion Characteristics. The novel lever design combines the exceptional large tip/tilt range of 3° (mechanical tilt, which is equivalent to 100 mrad optical beam deflection) with the high resonant frequency of 1.0 kHz (including the mirror). These parameters make the system unique in the market of high-speed, long-range scanners.
Sub-Microradian Resolution and Stable Positioning The S-334 provides sub-microradian resolution. When operated in closed-loop mode, it offers absolute position control and high linearity of typically under ±0.25% over the entire travel range. This is achieved by high-resolution, full-bridge strain gauge sensors (SGS), calibrated specifically for each unit with the control electronics.
Recommended control electronics: the E-500 system, configured for tip/tilt mirrors with E-501.00 chassis, E-503.00S amplifier and E-509.S3S servo-controller.

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Improving Regenerative Medicine Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.Tick Genome Reveals Secrets of a Successful Bloodsucker NIH has announced that decipher the genome of the blacklegged tick which could lead to new tick control methods."Dark Side" of the Transcriptome New approach to quantifying gene "read-outs" reveals important variations in protein synthesis and has implications for understanding neurodegenerative diseases.
