The intersection of nanopositioning and microscopy is expanding and deepening rapidly. The evolutions of disciplines as diverse as single-molecule biophysics, super-resolution microscopy and automated microassay scanning share several common themes which combine to increase the prevalence of piezo-based positioning systems added-to or integrated into microscopic setups. Recently developed mechanisms of significant relevance to microscopic applications present substantial new opportunities for advancement.
This month's question is: What functionality and/or features will drive the next generation of test & measurement products? What will be the most radical emphasis? Lower cost, better accuracy, robustness, speed, the ability to function in hazardous environments? What are you looking for in your next test device? Our answers come from people at Honeywell, Rohde & Schwarz, and Texas Instruments.
