The PSH tilting systems, PSH 10/2 and PSH 5/2, consist of 4 piezoelectric actuators (always 2 stacks for one axis, controlled in conjunction with each other). These actuators provide tilt to the top plate on 2 rectangular axes. Their construction is temperature compensated so that changes of the surrounding temperature do not affect the tilting angle. The tilting stage is designed for "plus-minus tilting". Mirror mounts are preloaded, thus they are well suited for dynamic applications.
The high resonant frequency of the stage also allows for excellent dynamic operation. An integrated strain gauge measurement system is available for closed loop application.
