Precision Motion Control for Sample Manipulation in Ultra-High Resolution Tomography


Executive Summary

Precision motion control for sample manipulation is critical to achieving good imaging results in ultra-high resolution tomography applications. While selecting quality motion control components is essential, other aspects like good structural design and high-speed, synchronized data acquisition are also required. By taking a system-level design approach to all elements – including precision motion – experimental success is more readily achieved.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the key precision motion performance drivers for achieving nanometer-level tomography results
  • Learn how system-level design plays a key role in achieving success
  • Learn how the right data acquisition synchronization techniques coupled with the right motion equipment increases measurement


Who Should Read this Whitepaper:

  • System architects, engineers and scientists designing ultra-high resolution tomography experiments, especially in synchrotron light sources.
