Removal of HAM 9 Vibration Isolation Stack

December, 2010

LIGO personnel remove a 3300-lb optical table and passive vibration isolation stack from a Horizontal Access Module (HAM). The mirror and other optical table contents had been removed previously. The stack support table, resting on support tubes, will remain in the chamber for the time being to facilitate the installation of HAM 9's hydraulic external pre-isolator (HEPI). A servo-controlled Internal Seismic Isolator will eventually land inside the chamber in place of the passive stack.
