About



Mad City Labs, Inc has been a leading manufacturer of flexure based piezo nanopositioning systems capable of sub-nanometer positioning resolution since 1998. Our piezo nanopositioning product line covers the entire spectrum of piezo nanopositioning capabilities while maintaining a leadership role in multi-axis stages for high speed optical microscopy imaging.

Mad City Labs engineers use 3D CAD and finite element analysis to produce piezo nanopositioners which combine long ranges of motion with exceptional linearity, orthogonality, and stability. Our in-house CNC machining centers and wire EDMs provide complete control of mechanical assembly production and allow Mad City Labs to design and fabricate custom systems with minimal engineering costs and short lead times.

We deliver the tools for nanotechnology in 30 to 45 days and provide the highest level of customer service and satisfaction in the industry. We provide innovative and practical solutions for today's demanding biotechnology and nanotechnology applications. Most Mad City Labs piezo nanopositioners can be controlled by our high speed USB 2.0 interface. Applications for nanopositioners include super resolution microscopy, high speed confocal imaging, AFM, NSOM, scanning probe microscopy, fiber positioning, single molecule spectroscopy, single molecule/particle tracking, high resolution optical alignment, SR optical microscopy, sub-diffraction limit microscopy, nanoscopy and lithography.

Custom vs. Off-the-Shelf Solutions: Are You Dreaming Big Enough? (Piezoelectric Devices) When looking for a positioning solution, customers often skip directly to an off-the-shelf option, believing it will always be the most cost-effective and expedient approach. However, the reality of... (View Full Article)
Understanding noise at the nanometer scale (Piezoelectric Devices) Position noise in a nanopositioner as a function of frequency is quantifi ed with the help of a known sine-wave reference signal, allowing scaling to reflect the peak-topeak noise-power spectrum of... (View Full Article)
