Newport RS2000 and RS4000 Optical Tables

The several Newport RS2000 and RS4000 Optical Tables are designed for interferometry and high-resolution experiments. They combine a rigid trussed, honeycomb core with Newport’s highest level of tuned damping for extremely sensitive measurements requiring maximum vibration control. Their combined features include:

  • Selectively eliminate torsional and bending table modes
  • Individually tuned by trained vibration analysts
  • Allow adjustable levels of damping
  • Only effective damping for large table systems
  • Produce secondary broadband damping at higher frequencies
  • Damped work surface eliminates skin resonance
  • Damped composite edge finish eliminates side wall resonance
  • Constrained layer core damping attenuates broadband vibration modes
  • Truss bridges honeycomb cell to increase the stiffness-to-weight ratio of the table
  • Vertical bonding of core increases static rigidity
  • Triple core interface increases point loading capability
