Optical prisms are used to redirect light at a specified angle. Optical prisms are ideal for light deviation or for adjusting the orientation of the image. The design of the optical prism determines the interaction of light and light. When light enters the optical prism, it is reflected from a single surface or surfaces before exiting, or as it passes through the substrate. Prisms are widely used in laser research, laser optical systems, optical imaging, machine vision, life sciences, biomedical, and other fields.
MAP Optics offers a variety of substrates or coated optical prisms. Including right angle prism, pentagonal prism, Dove prism, roof prism, corner mirror, wedge prism. Anti-reflective coatings include MgF 2, UV-VIS, UV-AR, VIS 0°, VIS-NIR or multiple laser line options.
