IG Optical Breadboard Broadband Damping Performance

The 3.4 mm thick working surface on IG optical breadboards is bonded to a polymeric material that serves to seal the honeycomb core and damp the working surface. The trussed honeycomb is vertically bonded enabling a rigid triple core interface. Although the adhesive is rigid, its broadband damping factor is much higher than that of steel and introduces substantial damping into the core. The side panels are made of a highly damped, epoxy sealed wood composite. Compared to the metal sides used by other breadboard manufacturers, the composite wood sides offer significant damping to the structure and eliminate another source of resonance.

The compliance curve shows the positional motion of the breadboard structure for a given excitation force and frequency. The red is the rigid body line showing how an ideal optical breadboard would perform with no relative motion. The blue line shows the natural frequencies of an IG breadboard and how they deviate from that of a rigid body.

Innovatively Designed Platform Interface

Vision IsoStations feature a unique platform interface consisted of 4 corner constraints that act as a docking surface, an accessory mount and a restraint to keep the breadboard atop the frame. The interface also features float height indicators and frame bubble levels to make set-up and installation easier than ever. These same features are also useful when the system is relocated to another lab or if system performance needs to be verified.

Shipped Fully Assembled for Easy Installation

Another unique feature of Vision IsoStation is that we have designed a new shipping package that not only reduces packaging materials but also allows users to simply roll their system off into their lab, it’s as plug-and-play as can be! Since the breadboard is shipped pre-installed on the frame customers no longer need to lift the heavy breadboard during installation.

Field Upgradability from Rigid Frame to Isolated Frame

Vision IsoStation was designed with the maximum user flexibility in mind. When you purchase a rigid frame version of the workstation and later decide to upgrade to isolated frame, simply contact Newport and order an upgrade kit that allows you to upgrade your system in the field easily.
