Abstract. Variants of multi-axis platforms used in devices for object micro-positioning are analyzed. A microscope XY-stage with parallel kinematic and piezoelectric drive based on bimorph actuators is recommended. Results of experimental study of the XY-stage are presented and conclusions are formulated.
Keywords: XY-stage, design, bimorph piezoelectric actuators, experiments, micro displacement, voltage, hysteresis
