Our ScienceDesk™ Workstations designed for 2.5' x 3' (750 mm x 900 mm), 60 mm thick honeycomb breadboards are high-quality, ergonomic workstations with a modular system of accessories, making them ideal for use in imaging and photonics applications. A complete workstation includes a frame, breadboard, and optional accessories (all sold separately). Information on the available breadboards and accessories compatible with this workstation can be found below along with a simplified guide for customizing your own ScienceDesk workstation.

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 or the image to the right for a sample ScienceDesk configuration.

Depth: 755.0 mm (29.72"), Width: 905.0 mm (35.63")
These ScienceDesks are designed for use with 750 mm x 900 mm breadboards. The breadboard dimensions are what designate compatible accessories (e.g. an Overhead shelf for 900 mm wide ScienceDesks will be compatible with the above table).

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 work surface 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 tabletop. They are available with the standard 1/4"-20 (M6) hole pattern on 1" (25 mm) centers, with sealed or unsealed holes, and the option of 304L nonmagnetic steel.

Also offered are our intrinsically damped breadboards that feature a steel honeycomb core and working surface with unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) side panels. These 58 mm thick tabletops are approximately 25% lighter than our Nexus breadboards and are available for applications that require minimal vibration damping on the tabletop.

See the Specs tab for a complete comparison of the different breadboard options.

Accessories
Accessories are the key to creating an ergonomic workspace. ScienceDesk accessories are designed to provide the flexibility to place a breadboard, shelf, or storage bins at any position above, below, or to the side of the isolated 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-two 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' ScienceDesk frames have isolator mounting platforms in each of the interior four corners of the top rail. These platforms are fitted with rigid (non-isolating), standard passive, 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 Four Max Load Capacity: 700 kg (1540 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 Four Load Capacity
    • Standard Passive Isolators: 260 kg (570 lbs) Maximum Load
    • Heavy-Duty Passive Isolators: 700 kg (1540 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 Four Max Load Capacity: 700 kg (1540 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.

I think it would be helpful to include information on the COM envelop for the tables. We are running into this issue at the moment with one of your tables. Also, to address the issue with COM outside/above the envelop, having tapped holes on the underside to mount a counter mass would be helpful as well. Regards, Matias

Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for your post. We currently outline a system stability zone within our table leg support manuals. (pg.11) - https://www.thorlabs.com/drawings/a92f9d30be235dc8-42AA60D0-C572-5157-D81E4055DCE97FF9/PTS602-Manual.pd). Providing Centre of Mass data is certainly a good point which I have fed back onto our internal product review forum for discussion. Generally, this can be expected to sit near the centre point of the table. With regards to providing a bottom skin hole matrix, this is something that we can provide as a Custom Table option.

  • Three Support Options:
    • Active, Self-Leveling Vibration Isolation (SDA7590 and SDA7590S)
    • Passive Isolation (SDP7590 and SDH7590)
    • Rigid, Non-Isolating (SDR7590)
  • Welded Steel Frame (No Assembly Required)
  • Easy to Relocate with Optional Casters
  • High Load Capacities up to 700 kg (1540 lbs) (See Specs Tab for Details)

These frames provide a compact, portable, and ergonomic workstation solution for optical breadboards. The breadboard rests within the frame bars, which also protect the worksurface from incidental contact and provide compatibility with a number of additional accessories such as monitor mounts, keyboard holders, and shelving. The welded steel frame provides high rigidity and requires no assembly. Optional casters provide easy mobility throughout the lab while a large array of shelving, storage, lighting, and computer accessories create an ergonomic, modular workspace ideal for any application.

Our active-isolation ScienceDesks are available in two heights, 765 mm (30.12") and 910 mm (35.80"). The shorter desk (SDA7590) is optimized for comfort while in a seated position, while the taller one (SDA7590S), shown to the right, is designed as a standing desk option with clearance to comfortably fit a lab stool with ample leg room. The height of all desks can be adjusted by ±15 mm (±0.59") using leveling feet.

Support Options
These ScienceDesk Workstations are available with active, passive, 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.

  • Set of Four Risers for Our ScienceDesk Frames
  • Adjusts our Standard ScienceDesks to the Height of the 910 mm Tall Standing ScienceDesks
  • Compatible with All Frame Types

The PSY170 set of four risers elevates Thorlabs' ScienceDesk frames to a height of 910 mm (35.8"), making them the ideal height for use while standing. Remove the existing feet and secure each 145 mm (5.71") tall riser to a leg of the ScienceDesk frame using the top-located M16 bolt. Refit the standard ScienceDesk feet to the bottom of the risers, and level the frame in the usual way. Due to the height increase, the casters (PSY140) cannot be used with these frame risers.

These risers, which are sold in a set of four, are not compatible with our Corner ScienceDesks. Please contact Tech Support if you wish to order a set of five.

Each overhead shelf comes with two hinged clamps for attaching to mounting posts, as shown in the image to the right. To install a shelf, secure the clamps at the desired height on the posts. The shelf can then be lowered onto the clamps and attached using the provided M6 cap screws. At this point the shelf can be repositioned or leveled as required. For more details on installation, please see the manual, which is available by clicking on the red Docs icon () below.

Locking Clamp Positioned Under Our PSY321 Breadboard Mounting Bracket, Holding it in Place and Allowing for Free Rotation of the Bracket
  • Retain the Position of Ø1.5" Post Mounted Accessories
  • Hinged Clamp Design Allows for Installation Without Removing Existing Shelves

Thorlabs PSY322 Hinged Locking Clamps are the ideal solution for preventing the unwanted movement of accessories along the axis of the post. Locking the clamp in place (5 mm hex key included) directly under a post-mounted accessory, as shown to the right, prevents the accessory from sliding down the post when it is loosened for adjustments. This also allows mounted shelving or brackets to be freely rotated around the axis of the post to a needed position at any time.

Faraday Enclosure

  • Tested by Independent Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Consultants
  • Shielding Effectiveness >70 dB at 10 MHz
  • Removable Panels for Easy Access
  • ScienceDesk Accessories Fit Inside
  • Designed to Fit 750 mm x 900 mm ScienceDesk Frame

Sensitive electrophysiology and microscopy applications benefit when isolated from external interferences such as electrostatic fields and high frequency electromagnetic waves (e.g., AM/FM radio waves, CRT oscilloscopes, and fluorescent strip lights). The ScienceDesk™ Faraday Enclosure protects against these external sources of interference and is designed to fit our 750 mm x 900 mm ScienceDesk bases.

The enclosure mounts onto the ScienceDesk frame, not the breadboard as with systems from other manufacturers, and therefore does not interfere with the vibration-isolated tabletop.

The magnetic panels are easily removed for access to the work area, and two holes in the rear panel assist in cable management. The range of ScienceDesk post-mounted accessories described above can be fitted within the enclosure, providing a variety of shelving and equipment mounting options. In addition, adapter brackets are available to allow side shelves and post-mounted accessories to be fitted outside the protected area.

Our 25 mm structural rails and components can also be attached to the inside face of the frame, thereby allowing custom enclosure and shelving systems to be constructed.

For detailed information, please see our complete product presentation.

The enclosure is not compatible with the Wrist Rest (PSY100), and the Sample Preparation Shelves (PSY250 to PSY252).
