The website focuses on case studies from experiment stations in research centers all over the world. They provide a detailed description of the experimental equipment and the demands made on positioning systems with respect to the various different methods of analysis such as x-ray tomography, spectroscopy or microscopy. This provides an impressive insight into the technical possibilities under the extreme ambient conditions that prevail in particle accelerators, synchrotron radiation sources or free-electron lasers.
Furthermore, the new website shows further products and system solutions from the portfolio of the PI Group for high-precision, long-term stable and flexible alignment of the core components in large research facilities.
Research into increasingly small particles and structures requires increasingly larger machines and instruments. The Beamline Instrumentation Division of the PI Group supports research projects on large-scale equipment. The specialists from Beamline Instrumentation work closely together with universities and research centers. They are already in close contact with scientists during the conception phase and, depending on the requirement, undertake development tasks, engineering services and system integration including the full instrumentation of an experiment.
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.
