4D Technology (Tucson, AZ) has released optical mounting components for use with large aperture laser interferometers. Rigid and vibration-resistant, the mounts interface readily with optics from most manufacturers. The mounting components include sturdy bases and table guides for use on optical tables; translation, tilt and rotation adapters for alignment; chucks and bayonet-style mounts to securely hold test optics; and shelves, plates and other accessories for custom mounting configurations. Mounts are available in 4-inch and 6-inch versions.
