Parallel Cantilever Biaxial Micro-Positioner



E Amatucci, Nicholas Dagalakis


The Parallel Cantilever Biaxial Micro-Positioner (PCBMP) has a novel configuration and design in that it has two parallel sets of cantilever beam flexures. This design reduces crosstalk in the X and Y translations and creates motions that are more linear and independent from each other in the X and Y directions. The PCBMP comes in two flavors, which are explained in this brief paper.
