Experiment on electron storage ring BESSY II
Piezoelectric micro motors on ropes
Special contract at the service of researchers: For an experiment on the electron storage ring BESSY II in Berlin, the positioner specialist Steinmeyer Mechatronik was commissioned to develop a sample manipulator. In addition to flexibility and high precision, the requirements also included a design that could withstand vacuum and magnetic forces. The company used PiezoMotor actuators for this challenging task.
Three-dimensional visualization of magnetism in live circuits was the goal of the researchers who approached the Dresden-based company Steinmeyer Mechatronik. For their experiment, the scientists needed extremely brilliant X-ray light, such as that generated by the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II. Researchers around the world can use this light source for their experiments, such as examining solar cells, materials for hydrogen generation, or quantum materials. The beam tubes at the side of the storage ring are equipped with state-of-the-art spectroscopy and microscopy methods.
