DAli 3 Automatic Alignment Systems available with MDE piezo-driven XYZ Positioners

Elliot Scientific is offering the DAli 3 Automatic Alignment Systems with a choice of MDE123 or MDE125 Elliot Gold™ Series piezo-actuated XYZ flexure stages.

Two systems are available. The E2323 comprises a model E2300 2-axes automated feedback piezo controller plus MDE123 Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ flexure stage fitted with piezo actuators providing 25 µm of piezo adjustment in each of the three axes, or the E2325 with 100 µm of piezo adjustment. Both systems also offer 2 mm of manual adjustment in each axis.

E2323_1200AThe Elliot Scientific DAli 3 is the latest version of our popular automated photonic device alignment system for the following applications:

  • Fibre-to-laser diode alignment
  • Fibre-to-waveguide alignment
  • Fibre-to-fibre coupling
  • Fibre array-to-device alignment
  • Compensation for epoxy drift during pigtailing
  • Compensation for drift during long-term characterisation
  • Simultaneous alignment of input & output fibres (or arrays) to waveguide device

A typical E2300 DAli 3 system now consists of our new 3-channel E1100 piezo controller, the USB-equipped DAli 3 interface, and a customer-supplied PC or laptop for driving the easy to use software. Although designed to complement the piezo-driven versions of the Elliot Gold™ Series range of flexure stages, such as the MDE123 and MDE125 described above, it is also suited to other piezo devices working on 0 to 150 volts.

For more information, please contact us.


New 3-Channel Piezo Controller from Elliot Scientific

E1100_1001The all new E1100 Piezo Controller is an open loop, three channel amplifier suitable for driving low voltage (up to 150 V) piezo actuators and stacks. The E1100 as been especially designed to incorporate the latest technologies, and combines low noise and outstanding stability with a high power output. This makes it ideal for open loop, high resolution control of piezoelectric devices, in particular, the Elliot|Martock MDE123 and MDE125 Piezo-driven Flexure Stages.

Key features

  • Voltage control by BNC, potentiometer, or USB interface
  • Output noise: < 50 µVRMS
  • Output stability: <0.01% over 16 hours
  • Includes software drivers, LabVIEW examples & tutorial, and C# GUI
  • Rack mounting option

Please contact us for full specifications and pricing information.


analytica and SU2P open next week – Elliot Scientific at both

analyticaFor four decades, analytica has been the leading international fair for state-of-the-art laboratory technology and pioneering biotechnology. No other trade fair in the world covers the range of subjects related to the laboratory in industry and science in such breadth and depth, and on such a scale.

Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating our Optical Tweezers system in Booth 240, alongside our German distributor Mountain Photonics, which can be found in Hall A2. We will also be showing our range of precision mechanics, from ultra-small slides to our world-renowned high-resolution Flexure Stages.

The analytica event takes place from the 1st to the 4th of April at Messe Munchen.

The fifth annual SU2P Symposium opens on Monday, and over two days an exceptional list of speakers from around the world will present details of leading edge research and industrial utilisation of a wide range of photonics and related topics. A small exhibition runs alongside and we will be there demonstrating the range of products Elliot Scientific can offer to scientists and manufacturers.

SU2P LogoSU2P is a collaborative venture between six institutions that focuses on:

  • Biophotonics
  • Solar cell devices and characterisation
  • Integrated photonics
  • Solid-state laser engineering and nonlinear optics
  • Photonics sensors
  • Environmental science and technology

SU2P takes place from the 31st of March to the 1sth of April at the McCance Building, University of Strathclyde.
