Honeycomb Breadboards

Thorlabs Optical Breadboard similar to Newport and TMCDVIO-B series 25, 50 and 100 mm thick honeycomb optical breadboards offer superior performance levels of broad banding and rigidity that effectively minimise relative displacement in a wide frequency, ensuring a guaranteed performance and quality for a variety of purposes.

0.25 mm thick honeycomb steel layers are corrugated to increase core density and minimise cell size. These corrugated honeycomb steel layers are vertically epoxy-bonded with stainless steel top skins, carbon steel bottom skins and sidewalls to offer static and dynamic rigidity for the outstanding performance level of our optical tables and breadboards.

Our honeycomb core yields in the highest core density and the smallest honeycomb cell size 3.2㎠, offering remarkable rigidity of the optical tables and breadboards. The smallest honeycomb cells contribute to increase the elastic selection modulus and increases the natural resonance frequency of the optical tops. The higher natural frequency minimises vibration intensities  and deflection under loads which is critical for conducting optical experiments.

Custom Breadboard Options

customised shape Newport optical breadboardWe offer customisation of optical breadboards to meet a variety of experimental requirements.

Aluminium Optical Plates

Thorlabs aluminium plates for mounting optical componentsDSAP series aluminium optical plates offer a solid black anodised surface with a grid of M6 mounting holes for end-users’ components. The black anodised surface reduces reflection of light and prevents the optical plates from turning rusty or corroded.
Selection of 12 mm and 15 mm thick aluminium optical plates is an optimal solution for mounting applications that do not require critical vibration damping. 

Scientific Grade Optical Tops

Newport Scientific Grade Optical TableOur scientific grade optical tops are based on the broadband standard damping which minimises relative displacement in a wide frequency, offering a promised performance and quality for extensive applications. The scientific grade optical tops provide the same features as the research grade optical table but with reduced structural damping level.

200mm, 300mm and 400mm thickness models with a range of sizes are available. 

Research Grade Optical Tops

Newport Research Grade Optical TableOur research grade optical tops offer the finest performance level of broadband damping that effectively minimises relative displacement in a wide frequency; therefore, users can use our optical tops for the most challenging applications. The research grade optical tops provide the same features as the scientific grade optical tops, but with the higher structural damping level, increased elastic selection modulus and improved rigidity.

200mm, 300mm and 400mm thickness models with a range of sizes are available.

Non-magnetic Stainless Steel Optical Tops

Non magnetic all stainless steel optical table from TMCNon-magnetic stainless steel optical tops are made of 304 series ferromagnetic stainless steel for clean rooms and non-magnetic applications. The non-magnetic stainless steel optical tops provide the same features and benefits that are present on the research grade optical tops. The stainless steel optical tops feature the finest performance level of broadband damping that effectively minimises relative displacement in a wide frequency, superior structural damping level and ultimate rigidity

Customised High Rigidity Newport Optical TableWe offer customisation of all optical tops to meet a variety of experimental requirements.
