2010/06 CVI Melles Griot Optical Table arrives to LICA
One of the critical facilities of the LICA is a CVI Melles Griot Optical table. It corresponds to a StableTop 450 series, including Pump & Go pass. vibration isolators (h: 700mm) provided by Innova Scientific. See pictures of the installation at the image gallery.
