A novel nanopositioning stage was designed according to the scanning property of SPM with flexure hinge as kinematic structure and piezoelectric ceramic as actuator. Kinetic precision and X directional area of nanopositioner are 1.55nm and 26.4 micron, respectively, which is demonstrated by kinetic analysis and finite element method FEM simulation. Designed nanopositioner based on SPM moves at 3 dimensions with nanometer scale and its motion of X, Y, and Z directions is decoupled and isotropic. Furthermore, frame of nanopositioner is simple and manufacturing is convenient, which will have broad prospect in the field of nanopositioning and nanotracing.
