TB Series Piezoelectric Tube Scanners

Piezoelectric tube scanners are thin cylinders of radially poled piezoelectric material with four external electrodes a continuous internal electrode. When a voltage is applied to one of the external electrodes, the actuator wall expands which causes a vertical contraction and a large lateral deflection of the tube tip. A circumferential electrode can be used for vertical or radial extension and contraction.

Piezoelectric tube scanners are used extensively in scanning probe microscopes and applications such as fiber stretching and beam scanning.
