Thorlabs Optical Breadboards

Thorlabs Nexus

Honeycomb Optical Breadboards

Optical breadboards are a relatively portable platform for building an optical setup on a flat surface. Thorlabs offers three types of honeycomb breadboards. The extensive Nexus damped optical breadboard product line features all-steel construction, excellent thermal stability, and damping optimized for each breadboard size. The 5 mm thick stainless steel top and bottom skins have a precision-machined matte finish, and the mounting holes have a 1/2" (12.5 mm) border at the edges of the breadboard. Our 58 mm thick optical breadboards are intrinsically damped and lightweight and also feature a 5 mm thick stainless steel top skin. The mounting holes have a 1.5" (37.5 mm) border at the edges of the breadboard. Our nonmagnetic aluminum breadboards are available in a lightweight 25 mm thick version as well as a stiffer 55 mm thick version. The mounting holes have a 1” (25 mm) border at the edges of the breadboards.
