Summary

This is an improved simple sample holder for peices of semiconductor wafers for optical experiments.

This component is part of the Open-source optics project, whose goal is to radically reduce the cost of scientific optical hardware: by the [Michigan Tech's Open Sustainability Technology Research Group]( http://www.mse.mtu.edu/MOST).

Instructions

This open-source sample holder is designed to hold a semiconductor wafer part on a smooth 8mm diameter rod.

This is an improvement on the last version - as now you can change samples easily using tweezers and one hand only. It uses less plastic than v2 and has a cutout for samples that are short.

Print on your favorite open source 3-D printer and enjoy. You can hold it to the smooth rod using m3s and the thumbscrew.

Use the thumb screw from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30500
