Research into ever smaller particles and structures uses large-scale equipment such as synchrotron beam sources or free-electron lasers. An essential part of such facilities are complex positioning systems that ensure high-precision and long-term stability for aligning samples and analytical systems.
PI has now combined its competences for experiments on accelerator beamlines in its Beamline Instrumentation Division. The division’s aim is to develop application-oriented solutions that go far beyond simply providing individual components. For this purpose, experts from the PI Beamline Instrumentation Division work closely together with universities and research centers. Here the experts from PI work on development projects and provide engineering services and system integration to complete instrumentation, including integration of third-party components such as cameras, detectors or additional positioning units.
Synergy effects for research
The Beamline Instrumentation Division is affiliated to PI miCos GmbH and will be coordinated from there. Close interaction with PI’s own development and production centers in Germany and worldwide guarantees the best possible precision positioning technology for the very special requirements of beam experiments.
The Beamline Instrumentation Division completes and supports worldwide the large distribution network of the PI Group with their longstanding recognized contacts.
