ABSTRACT
Achieving large motion range (> 1 mm) along with
nanometric motion quality (< 10 nm), simultaneously, has been
a key challenge in nanopositioning systems. Practical
limitations associated with the individual physical components
(flexure bearing, actuators, and sensors) and their integration,
particularly in the case of multi-axis systems, have restricted
the range of current nanopositioning systems to about 100 m.
This paper presents a novel physical system layout, with a
