Motion at Absolute Zero?

The lower the temperatures, the less motion can be created. For ambient temperatures of 77 K (boiling point of nitrogen) or even 4 K (boiling point of helium) only few drive types are available. When operated at very low temperatures instead of room temperature, the displacement of piezo actuators is reduced but still measurable because their mechanism of action is based on solid-state effects within the material. The contacting is specially adapted to the ambient conditions.

Cryogenic Application

In the XEFL (X-ray Free-Electron Laser) particle accelerator, PICMA® actuators stabilize the resonant frequency at 4 K in the accelerator elements.
