Research Grade CleanTop® provides the ultimate in optical top performance. Unmatched in the industry, Research Grade performance combines the smallest cell-size and highest core density with the unique CleanTop® design, all-steel construction, and the highest level of structural damping commercially available.
Research Grade CleanTops are recommended for the most demanding applications including interferometers, holography, and ultra-fast lasers, as well as the most severe floor vibration environments. For the best overall vibration control, consider combining this top with a STACIS® iX support, a hybrid air/piezoelectric, 2-stage vibration cancellation system.
Corner Compliance data measures the displacement of the top in response to impact by a calibrated hammer. The lack of response below 300 Hz is indicative of extremely high damping and excellent overall structural performance. Compliance was measured on a 48 in. x 96 in. x 12 in. top.
