MAPS performance

From Anemos wiki
MAPS in-house, 6DoF nano-positioning demo. Scale in µm, dots are approximately the size of atoms being measured.

Sensor performance criteria quoted industry-wide are often ill defined or plain misleading. MAPS performance is assessed in several ways, each with different utility. These specifications are explained here.



Accuracy measures how close the result is to the actual value we were trying to achieve. The accuracy values shown below are based on our simulated tests.


Precision measures the consistency of our system and gives information about the relative accuracy in application. High precision is enough if achieving a high global accuracy is not needed but to measure the degree of displacement.


Resolution shows the theoretical accuracy of our system, i.e. the absolute limit of the technology.

Noise floor

Noise floor measures the degree of change in a stationary state.


Repeatability shows how close are the different measurement results to each other, comparing the results of the NPL (National Physical Laboratory), our real tests and our simulated tests.
