Wedge prisms are ideal for laser beam manipulation applications. A wedge prism, also known as a Risley prism, deflects a beam of light that is incident on the vertical surface of the prism by 2° to 10°.
A wedge prism can be used to manipulate a laser beam alone or in conjunction with another wedge prism.
