In the course of the development of the anti-oscillation mounts at the Institute of Optics it was also necessary to develop and construct suitable equipment for making accurate laboratory tests of their performance. The most important of this equipment was a special shake table for measuring the effect of various types and amounts of mechanical vibration upon anti-oscillation mounted optical systems. Since this shake table was essentially a precision instrument, not easily duplicated, the Institute of Optics was asked on numerous occasions to test other types of anti-oscillation mounts besides those developed in its own laboratory. As a result of many shake table performance tests on its own anti-oscillation mounts, the Institute of Optics established a standardized testing procedure, and a criterion for acceptable performance.
