A pentagonal prism deflects an incident beam or image by 90° without producing inverted or inverted images. In addition, the 90° beam deflection does not require the prism to be precisely aligned with the incident beam or image.
An optical prism is used to redirect light at a specified Angle. Optical prisms are ideal for light deflection or image orientation adjustment. The design of an optical prism determines how light interacts with light. When light enters an optical prism, it reflects off a single surface or surfaces before leaving, or refracts as it passes through the substrate. Prism is widely used in laser research, laser optical system, optical imaging, machine vision, life science, biomedical and other fields or products.
