Vertical Optic Table (2x1)


Optical breadboards are vital to most optics-adjacent experiments. They allow for easy connection of optical elements to predetermined axes along which light is usually required to travel. The traditional solution for this is a heavy floating table with built-in threads for attachment of optical components. These tables are usually stationary and fixed in terms of working area. Our solution is a mobile, affordable, robust, and modular optic table capable of extension, by stainless steel rods. This article deals with the 2x1 vertical optic table.


Dimensions (w×d×h) (mm): 225×270×285

This optic table is comprised of the following constituent parts:

Plastic Head Screw 6

The optic plate is the fundamental unit comprising all K-Optics modular optic tables, and it is the surface upon which optical setups can be assembled. Two vertical base connectors allow connection of the second table block vertically to the base table block. These are held in place by specially fabricated locking nuts, as well as plastic head screws that keep the tables fixed tightly to one another and to the connection points.

Corner sockets connect to a single corner on each individual block and are designed to accommodate a single leg – each of which is equipped with a stopper to prevent movement post-adjustment – or a plastic head screw, which serves to link between the vertical connector and the vertical baseboard. Legs are injection molded using a soft polymer to strengthen their grip with the surface on which the table is laid as well as dampen noise to the system. In this setup the corner sockets


This table configuration can host a variety of experimental setups. Its ability to host these setups is overshadowed by its sheer compatibility with a great many conceptualized setups. Optical components can be affixed anywhere along each of the grooves lining the top side of the blocks comprising the table. Attachment is done by standard threaded locking nuts which can be placed in any lattice spot, wherein there is 5 mm of free movement for additional liberty when placing components. Locking nuts come in either M6 or ¼” threads and are not mutually exclusive – that is, both can be utilized together. Setups made on this table are entirely mobile and can be easily assembled in advance to be taken elsewhere or just assembled as a demonstration and put away until required.
