ScienceDesks™: Anti-Vibration Workstations for Photonics Applications




  • Active, Passive and Rigid Isolation Options
  • Versatile Selection of Frames and Accessories
  • Space-Saving Corner Option Available
  • Ergonomic Design Provides Leg Room While Sitting

ScienceDesks are high-quality ergonomic workstations with a modular system of accessories, making them ideal for use in photonics applications. The active-air and passive anti-vibration frame options provide the user with a tabletop that is isolated from the detrimental effects that vibrations in the lab may cause. The tabletop is also protected from incidental contact because it rests inside the frame's outer rails. Thorlabs offers stainless steel tabletops with or without regularly spaced (1" or 25 mm) mounting holes. The upper and lower rails on the ScienceDesk frame allow the user to strategically place shelves and other accessories around an experiment so that supporting equipment can be in close proximity to the isolated surface without being on it.

A corner desk is also available which fits in the corner of the lab/room and permits access to the entire breadboard surface from the slanted corner. These corner desks are available with either active isolation, heavy-duty passive isolation, or rigid non-isolating supports. They are supplied complete with a Nexus series breadboard and are compatible with 2' and 600 mm deep lab furniture.
