Optics Table

Optics Table

An optics table is meant to solve the issues of very miniscule and generally insignificant movements through a lab table caused by larger outside forces such as forces that would send vibrations throughout an entire building. By suspending the table with air pressure, and installing a grid of threaded holes into the table, an optics table can be used in experiments where the generally miniscule movements might be a significant factor.
