Paper Abstract

There is as yet no accepted standard for the vibration limits of scientific, medical and surgical microscopes. In order to service recent consultancy contracts, the Wolfson Unit for Noise and Vibration Control (WUNVC) has found it necessary to deliberately vibrate such instruments in a controlled manner over a range of frequencies and levels in order to obtain a subjective assessment of acceptability from the operator. Several examples of these ad hoc experiments are presented and compared to other research findings for vibrating displays as a tentative contribution to the development of acceptable standards.
