As a grad student a long time ago, we had several laser labs spewed throughout the building. There was no building criteria, and everyone used optical tables.

Hi all,

Any of you know the vibration criteria used in their building? Depending on the type of research,
for example, if you are using laser or vibration sensitive equipment, which vibration criteria has been chosen?
And more importantly, why is this level have been chosen? Is it better, regarding you experience, to have a building
with low-level of vibration or to buy a better optic table (cost vs effectiveness)

Best regards,
