Optical right angle prism: Why use a right angle prism?
Right-angle prism is the most common type of prisms. It is used to re-direct a beam of light at 90 degrees from the the incident direction or used as a 180 beam
retro-reflector. They are often coated with various optical coatings to form cubic beam
splitters and color separation cubes used in various projection systems.
1.High transmission can be achieved, using the hypotenuse face in total internal reflection
(TIR), with an antireflection coating on the entrance and exit faces.
2.The prism can be used as an internal or external mirror by applying a metallic coating
on the hypotenuse.
3.We also offer standard grade for standard applications and ultra-precision grade right-angle prisms for critical application.
