Features

  • XY Stage with Central SM1-Threaded Hole for Imaging Applications
  • 4.25" × 4.20" (108.0 mm × 106.7 mm) Mounting Platform
  • Array of Mounting Options
    • 24 1/4"-20 (M6) Taps
    • 12 8-32 (M4) Taps (Compatible with SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips)
    • 8 4-40 Taps for use with 30 mm or 60 mm Cage Components

Thorlabs' XYT1 Low-Profile Translation Stage provides 1/2" (13 mm) of travel along X and Y, incorporates micrometers that have graduations at 0.001"/div (10 µm/div), and features a central Ø1" hole that is SM1 threaded (1.035"-40), allowing the stage to be used in imaging applications that require illumination from underneath the sample. Translation of the stage in both X and Y will not obstruct the Ø1" through hole. .

In addition to the SM1-threaded through hole, the platform also contains an array of 1/4"-20 (M6), 8-32 (M4), and 4-40 taps for mounting of samples and components. The eight 4-40 tapped holes are placed around the central through hole for use with our 30 mm or 60 mm cage systems, while the 8-32 (M4) tapped holes are ideal for mounting our SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips (available below).

The SLH1 spring clips are designed to securely hold various sizes of microscope slides and test targets, and include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to a variety of stages. Each clip is 2.51" (63.7 mm) long with a 0.20" (5.1 mm) wide tip and can be rotated 360° for easy access to, or positioning of, a slide. These clips come with 3 dowel pins, for use with the XYT1(/M) stage, that will center a 1" × 3" standard microscope slide over the Ø1" through hole.

For applications that require rotation along with X and Y translation, Thorlabs also offers an XY translation and 360° rotation stage. If a different manual drive or a motorized actuator is required, please contact Tech Support.

It would be great if you had a similar model, but smaller xy profile, say between 50x50mm and 75x75mm. Often I have some optics assembly that I want to attached a vacuum system (such as with the VFA275 conflat mount adapter) but also want to be able to x-y displace the entire cage assembly. Would be perfect if I could mount to the cage a stage such as this one (with beam through-hole), and then mount the stage to the conflat. This one a bit bulky for this application.

Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: We do have a smaller version of this, but without the X-Y translation, the CPVM. We will review your suggestion.

Two-Axis Linear Translation Stage with Static Platform

Click to Enlarge
XYT1 with SLH1 Spring Clips and Slide. Dowel Pins in the Stage Align the Center of the Slide to the Optical Center of the Ø1" Hole.
  • Two-Axis Translation Stage with Static Platform
  • 1/2" (13 mm) Linear Travel Along X and Y Axes
  • Compatible with SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips (Sold Below)

Thorlabs’ XYT1(/M) is a 1.00" (25.4 mm) tall, low-profile, two-axis linear translation stage that features a central SM1-threaded (1.035"-40) through hole. This feature is ideal for imaging applications that require illumination from the underneath of the sample. Both X and Y micrometers offer a 1/2" (13 mm) of travel with graduations every 0.001" (10 µm). These stages are held in position by a spring force on the actuator, and thus, a locking screw is not necessary.

As shown in the image to the right, this stage is also compatible with the SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips sold below. The XYT1(/M) has 3 alignment holes for the Ø1/8" × 1/4" dowel pins (included with the SLH1). These dowel pins center the middle of a 1" × 3" microscope slide over the through hole, as well as allow the user to repeatedly and accurately position the slides on the stage. The spring clips include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to the stage.

Microscope Slide Spring Clips

translation stage with rotation
Click to Enlarge

XYR1 Translation Stage with SLH1 Spring Clips and Slide. Dowel Pins in the Stage Align the Center of the Slide to the Optical Center of the Ø1" Hole.
  • Pair of Spring Clips Hold Sample Firmly in Place
  • Accommodates Microscope Slides and Test Targets of Various Sizes
  • Attaches Directly to Any Stage with 8-32 (M4) Tapped Holes
  • Dowel Pins Included for Aligning Standard Slides Over the Through Hole in Our XYR1(/M) or XYT1(/M) Translation Stages (See Photo to the Right)

These steel spring clips, ideal for securely holding various sizes of microscope slides and test targets, include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to a variety of stages. Each clip is 2.51" (63.7 mm) long with a 0.20" (5.1 mm) wide tip and can be rotated 360° for easy access to, or positioning of, a slide. The tip of the clip is curved upwards to help prevent damage and facilitate the mounting of slides, while providing enough holding force to secure them in place.

The inclusion of three Ø1/8" x 1/4" dowel pins make these spring clips an excellent choice for use with our XYT1(/M) (sold above) and XYR1(/M) Translation Stages (see image to the right). These stages have a central Ø1" hole that is SM1 threaded (1.035"-40), and the top plate contains three alignment holes that are used with the Ø1/8" dowel pins. The dowel pins are positioned on the stage so that standard 1" x 3" (25.4 mm x 76.2 mm) slides are centered over the aperture, allowing for repeatable and accurate positioning of the slides.

Please note that any XYR1(/M) stage purchased before June 4, 2014 does not have dowel pin holes in the top mounting plate.
