Nine-Axis High Precision System for Brookhaven National Laboratory

This system was designed to position both the sample and a MAR345 detector for use in an experiment at Brookhaven National Labs. 5 degrees of freedom of the detector were used to align the detector with the incoming beam. A 6th, high precision translation was used to position the detector along the beam path while maintaining a vertical position of +/- 20µm. The sample was positioned with a 4 DOF (degrees of freedom) stack up of stages including an X,Y,Z and a rotation. The entire structure is contained on a large welded steel tubing base with locking casters to create a unique, portable experiment station.
