In this paper we report the results of experimental research of a new flexible and variable-rigidity waveguide, which operation is based on ultrasound vibrations. The tested waveguide is a combination of conical-stepped-cylindrical waveguides, which enables significant improvement of dynamic characteristics with respect to various existing static loads. The resonant frequency for excitation of the waveguide is in the range of 24-26 kHz. The measurements presented in this paper were performed on a STANDA vibration-isolation honeycomb-type table by means of the POLYTEC laser Doppler vibrometer system MSV-400 consisting of a laser interferometer OFV-512, vibrometer controller OFV-5000 and analog-to-digital converter ADC-2424 (PICO,GB) as well as by using HYTEC holographic interferometry system PRISM
