High Magnification Imaging Devices that utilize precision stages for specimen placement often implement feed back control systems to ensure a fixed working distance during scans. Precise control of stage motion is critical for successful scans of biological specimens. Numerous vibration sources can affect the performance of these stages during scans which may cause an error in the reading. In cases of destructive testing, the biological sample cannot be rescanned resulting in costly waste of the sample. Sources of problematic vibrations can be environmental such as the laboratory or internal to the imaging device. Complicating matters is the sensitivity of the imaging process to undesired motion. Engineers create control systems that control stages with nanometer precision. Vibration problems such as these require a non-contact, highly sensitivity vibration measurement system that requires no surface treatment. Customers have come to rely on Optomet’s SWIR digital laser Doppler vibrometers to provide them the most sensitive vibration measurements possible without the need for surface treatment on dark, black, matte or other optically uncooperative surfaces. Using Optomet’s technology, engineers can qualify vibration levels and design solutions for challenging environments or internal instrument dynamics.
