Square Filter Holder for Open-source Optics by jpearce Sep 30, 2012


This is a filter holder for optical experiments.

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