Optical breadboards are a relatively portable platform for building an optical setup on a flat surface. Thorlabs’ standard series optical breadboards are made from nonmagnetic, solid aluminum and are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes that feature either imperial- or metric-threaded holes. Optical breadboards compatible with our mini-series line, as well as versions with double-density holes, are offered to accommodate setups where space is limited. Also available are optical breadboards for specialized applications, such as temperature stabilization or large area translation, as well as a large range of accessories. In addition to our stocked offerings, custom optical breadboards can be requested using the form below; options include hole pattern and spacing, size, thickness, and anodizing.
