The new piezoelectrical actuator based mirror tilting platform, PSH 4/1, was developed as an ultra fast scanning system for kHz frequencies.
The miniature sized system is based on two active actuators. It provides +/- tilting with a total travel range of up to 4 mrad. Because of the internal preload, the system shows a very short settling time and the resonant frequency is greater than 6.5 kHz when unloaded.
Because of the special flexure hinge design (FEA calculated) the system is free of friction and mechanical play.
The PSH 4/1 is available in cryogenic and vacuum versions as well.
Optical components (e.g. mirrors) can be mounted on the top plate directly.
