Tubular optical system for spectrometry


Spectrometry, a widely used technique with many variations, is the precise analysis of the different components constituting a particular light ray. This analyzed radiation can be the result of various experiments allowing the inference of detailed information on the nature of the object concerned. This technique is very sensitive to the signal transmission chain and requires a precise control of the actuators when they are involved in the shaping of the radiation. The coaxial lens actuator meets this criterion and is thus perfectly adapted to spectrometry.

Main features

Stroke (per lens):7.5 mm
Unidirectional repeatability:± 5 µm
Lateral repeatability (per lens):± 1 µm
Angular repeatability (per lens):± 0.1 mrad

Our systems, adapted to your environment

MPS Microsystems' optical platforms bring together several technologies that we have mastered for decades. Thanks to this expertise, we are able to adapt our systems to the various applications for which they will be used. Our platforms are modular in their dimensions, type of motor, length and diameter of the ball screws, number of lenses and many other characteristics. Whatever your requirements and constraints are, MPS will take them into account. Thus, we are certain to be able to offer you a system perfectly adapted to your environment. Contact our engineers today to start your project.

Coaxial lens actuator for spectrometry

Coaxial lens actuator

The coaxial lens actuator by MPS is perfectly adapted to the development of spectrometers. This very compact optical system with an original design allows the movement of lenses in a perfectly coaxial way over several millimeters. The coaxiality of the lens holders is guaranteed by a common bore machined in a single operation. Numerous dimensional modifications allow a exact adaptation to the optical design of its application. Due to the use of perfectly fitting ball cages, the low-friction translation mechanism of the coaxial lens actuator allows for intensive use and offers an unmatched lifespan without special maintenance.
