Depth: 387.5 mm (15.50"), Width: 900.0 mm (36.00")
These ScienceDesks are designed for use with our 900 mm wide corner breadboards (included). The breadboard's width and depth is what designates compatible accessories (e.g. an Overhead shelf for 900 mm wide ScienceDesks will be compatible with the above table).

The work surface of the ScienceDesk is mounted on rigid or vibration-isolating supports that are recessed within the frame rails to protect the tabletop from incidental contact. These steel frame rails also facilitate the strategic placement of shelves and other accessories around a system so that supporting equipment can be in close proximity to the isolated surface without being on it. See the Accessory Options tab for a sample ScienceDesk configuration.

Each workstation is available with rigid (non-damping), passive, or active supports for applications requiring resolutions of <1 µm, <0.1 µm, or <0.001 µm, respectively. 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, while the rigid option will not isolate the breadboard from external vibrations. For more details on the different support options please see the Isolators tab.

Breadboard
Our Nexus® Optical Breadboards feature all-steel construction with a honeycomb core, excellent thermal stability, and broadband damping optimized for each table. They provide a durable, rigid, 60 mm thick working surface that will quickly damp vibrations created on the breadboard. Each breadboard includes 1/4"-20 or M6 taps and is magnetic.

Accessories
Accessories are the key to creating an ergonomic workspace. ScienceDesk accessories are designed to provide the flexibility to place a breadboard, shelf, or linbin at any position above, below, or to the side of the imaging system. In addition to shelving and storage, ScienceDesks can be equipped with brackets and holders to support computer equipment, casters for mobility, and a wrist rest for comfort. Thirty-three accessory mounting points along the upper rails provide numerous configuration options to help simplify the customization of your workstation.

Vibration Isolation Tutorial

ScienceDesk™ Isolators

Thorlabs' corner ScienceDesk frames have isolator mounting platforms in three of the interior five corners of the top rail. These platforms are fitted with rigid (non-isolating), heavy-duty passive, or active supports for optical breadboards depending on the model chosen.

Active-Air: This is the highest level of isolation available in the ScienceDesk line of workstations. Ideal for confocal microscopy, high-resolution optical microscopy, scaning probe microscopy, electrophysiology, holography, optical lithography, high-power optical microscopy, or other application requiring nanometer resolution.

Passive: The standard version has been optimized for typical imaging applications that require micon resolution, while a heavy-duty version is available for applications that require a large load to be placed on the isolated breadboard. The level of isolation provided by our passive isolators provides an ideal environment for optical, OCT, confocal, and other imaging systems without the need for a constant supply compressed air.

Rigid (Non-Isolating): Commonly used in laboratory environments for applications that are not overly sensitive to vibrations due to the lack of pneumatic isolators.

Passive ScienceDesk Mount

Active Supports

  • Set of Three Max Load Capacity: 525 kg (1160 lbs)
  • Pneumatic Dual-Chamber Air Spring Damps Vertical Vibrations
  • Trifilar Suspension System Damps Horizontal Vibrations
  • Self-Leveling Valves with High Repeatability

Our ScienceDesks equipped with active isolators provide the highest degree of vibration isolation. Vertical damping is achieved by the use of a dual-chamber, damped pneumatic spring. The table is supported by the air pressure in these chambers. A piston, in contact with the bottom of the optical breadboard, is sealed to the upper chamber with a rolling rubber diaphragm, allowing virtually friction-free motion between piston and chamber. Floor or breadboard motion forces air to flow from one chamber to the other through a laminar flow damper. This restriction of airflow damps oscillatory motion between the floor and table, dramatically reducing settling time.

The volume ratio of the chambers has been optimized to minimize the resonant frequency of the table frame while maximizing the damping performance. Damping of horizontal vibrations is accomplished by supporting the pneumatic vertical isolator on a Trifilar suspension system. This innovative pendulum design uses gravity to provide the restoring force after horizontal disturbances. Horizontal oscillations at the system’s resonant frequency are damped by linking the base of the vertical isolator to the outer cylinder with an oil-free, vibration-absorbing damper. To allow for changes in load distribution, the active vibration isolation optical breadboard supports have a self-leveling system based on precision 3-way valves that do not compromise vertical isolation when the system is at rest. Because these valves are actuated by breadboard movement, the system returns to within ±0.5 mm (0.02") of its original level position after disturbances. These isolators require a constant supply of air, such as that provided by our compressor. Removing the air supply will disable the active isolation system, causing the optical table to rest securely on top of the legs.

ScienceDesks with active, self-leveling isolators not only provide the highest level of isolation but they are ideal for applications where the load placed on the optical breadboard is constantly changing. In addition, the active ScienceDesk frame is often chosen when the surrounding environment is less than ideal since the active isolators provide a higher level of isolation from floor vibrations.

Passive ScienceDesk Mount

Passive Supports

  • Set of Three Load Capacity
    • Heavy-Duty Passive Isolators: 525 kg (1160 lbs) Maximum Load
  • Pneumatic Spring

The passive isolators on a ScienceDesk consist of an air chamber with a rolling-rubber sidewall. The air chamber is connected by tubing to a Schrader valve so that once the air chamber is inflated, the source of compressed air or the pump used to pressurize the chamber can be removed. The optical breadboard is supported by the air pressure in the chamber, which can be adjusted to compensate for a change in the load supported by the system. The volume and stiffness of the reinforced rubber air chamber has been optimized to minimize the resonant frequency of the optical table supports while maximizing the damping performance. The optical breadboard is supported by rigid supports when the passive isolators are not inflated.

ScienceDesks with passive isolators are the most frequently chosen ScienceDesk for imaging applications. The level of isolation provided by the passive isolators provides an ideal environment for optical, OCT, confocal, and other imaging systems without the need for a constant supply of regulated compressed air. The compact frame supports a family of accessories that allow for the creation of an ergonomic workstation for imaging applications. For instance, a Swept Source OCT Imaging System contains the optical scan head as well as a computer, monitor, swept source laser, and a control box. With the ScienceDesk, all of the supporting electronics can be easily situated around the isolated optical breadboard without transmitting the vibrations created by the cooling fans.

Rigid ScienceDesk Mount

Rigid Supports

  • Set of Three Max Load Capacity: 525 kg (1160 lbs)
  • Non-Skid, Rubberized Optical Breadboard Contact Pad

Rigid supports are non-isolating optical breadboard supports. They consist of a steel mounting tray welded into each corner of the frame. Each tray has 3 contact pads made from a rubberized material. The non-slip rubberized material prevents the position of the optical breadboard from drifting within the optical breadboard well of the ScienceDesk frame. The mounting trays are tested at the factory to ensure they are level. ScienceDesk frames with rigid supports are offered by Thorlabs for use in applications that are not sensitive to vibrations but that can still benefit from the ergonomic design and flexibility of the ScienceDesk system. For instance, applications like microscope slide preparation and low resolution semiconductor inspection might not require an isolated work surface, but the researcher or technician still needs to perform delicate tasks for prolonged periods of time in an environment that can support the preparation and inspection tools required for the application.

Support Options
These ScienceDesk Workstations are available with active isolation, passive isolation, or non-isolating supports depending on the amount of vibration isolation needed. Our active supports deliver our highest level of vibration isolation making them suitable for applications requiring nanometer resolution. In addition, they will adjust the pressure in each isolator to keep the optical table surface level, even when the distribution of weight on the tabletop is changed. Active supports will require a constant source of pressurized air, such as that provided by our compressor. For less demanding applications that require sub-micron resolution, such as OCT and confocal imaging, we offer passive isolation supports. Passive isolation supports do not require a constant source of compressed air and can be inflated with a simple air pump, but please follow the installation instructions outlined in the user guide so that the isolators are neither overinflated nor underinflated. Finally, a non-isolating rigid support frame is available that is ideal for applications that do not require vibration damping.

For more information on the different isolation types, please see the Isolators tab above.

  • PSY321 Includes a 750 mm (29.5") Tall Post
  • Hinged Clamp Design Allows for Installation Without Removing Existing Shelves

The PSY321 and PSY321/S Breadboard Brackets are designed to securely mount breadboards onto a Ø1.5" mounting post. Each bracket will support any aluminum breadboard up to 300 mm x 300 mm or 12" x 12" in size, and has a maximum load capacity of 20 kg (44 lbs). A hinged clamp, shown to the right, is included to attach the tray to the mounting posts. Its design allows the bracket to be installed anywhere on the post without removing the existing shelves. Additionally, a PSY322 Hinged Locking Clamp is included, which will hold the vertical position on the post while allowing for free rotational movement around the axis of the post.

A 750 mm (29.5") tall post is included with the PSY321 bracket to attach directly to the ScienceDesk frame. If additional brackets are needed we offer the PSY321/S, which do not include mounting posts. These additional brackets are also ideal if you wish to use our 1000 mm (39.4") tall mounting posts (sold separately) instead of the 750 mm (29.5") tall posts provided with the PSY321. Each bracket can also be mounted directly to our standard Ø1.5" posts.

The breadboard is mounted to the bracket using six 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws (not included). For more details on installation, please see the manual, which is available by clicking on the red

  • Two Voltage Options: 230 V @ 50 Hz or 115 V @ 60 Hz
