Anti-vibration tables serve to isolate the microscope and its associated components from external vibrations which can be caused by many sources, ranging from adjacent public transport to building oscillations caused by air-conditioning plant. At the extreme magnifications commonly employed in Fission Track Dating (x1000), such vibrations are quite evident, and can cause severe deformations of the captured video image, thus rendering the resultant image analysis irrelevant.

Anti-vibration arrangements range through a whole spectrum of complexity, effectiveness and cost, all the way from the simple granite slab/inner tube design we present here, to expensive high-technology "dynamic" anti-vibration tables which continuously cancel out vibrations which vary with time.
