Optics is the branch of physics that deals with light. It can involve the processing of light waves to view images better or studying the properties of light. An optical system is one that uses a lens, a mirror and a prism, as is in the case of a microscope or a telescope.
The invention of the laser in optics was as late as the 1960’s, yet its applications and uses are diverse. The LASER, whose name stands as an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is used in drilling and cutting, surgery, bar-code reading and much more.
It works by focusing light on one particular spot. The concept being that electrons are excited to a higher energy level within an atom and then made to lose their energy and drop to a lower energy level, releasing photons in the process. The emitted light is in phase, and is also called coherent light.
This coherent light delivers a huge amount of energy which makes its uses so varied. However, it can also prove to be a hazard if used in an improper or careless way. The effects of using a vibrating or shaky surface to mount a laser or an optical system can be huge.
In lasers, a beam pointing stability is what determines whether the beam is pointing at the target at which it is aimed at. This can be affected by external mechanical vibrations on the system. A relative motion of the target to which the light has to be focused can result in large losses in terms of the efficiency and accuracy of the laser beam.
The effect of vibrations on the various electronic components within the system can also cause phase fluctuations that affect the lasers performance.
Taking all these factors into account, it is of significant importance that a vibration isolation system be set in place for the optical laser system. We at anti-vibration tables can provide these vibration isolation systems and also set them up in your lab so that the true potential of the laser is achieved within your lab.
We realize that each lab or studio has unique needs and so we can help you by coming up with anti-vibration techniques specifically suited to your home or work environment. We at www.antivibrationtable.com offer you a customized solution to your problem.
