Optical Breadboards

Optical breadboards provide a portable platform with a mounting hole grid for building stand-alone optical assemblies or for extending the mounting area available on an optical table. Optical breadboards are selected based on performance criteria like the damping and stiffness required for an application. Damping is the ability of a breadboard to dissipate induced vibration on the breadboard's surface. Stiffness is the ability to resist bending under load. Precision grade breadboards are the most advanced in the market and feature patented modal damping technology. Solid aluminum breadboards are a cost effective solution for portable set-ups with low performance requirements.
