Grants related:


The submicrometric meter allows the measurement of mechanical displacements with an accuracy better than one micron. It is a device for control and data acquisition of mechanical probes with 5 independent channels. The range of movement of the probes is 1.5 mm with a precision in the measurement of 0.5 microns. The equipment is from the Mercer brand and model 225GD.
