In optics, a prism is a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that refract mild. at least two of the flat surfaces have to have an perspective among them. the exact angles between the surfaces depend upon the application. The traditional geometrical form is that of a triangular prism with a triangular base and rectangular sides, and in colloquial use "prism" usually refers to this kind. some kinds of optical prism are not in reality within the shape of geometric prisms. Prisms can be crafted from any cloth this is obvious to the wavelengths for which they may be designed. traditional materials encompass glass, plastic and fluorite.

A dispersive prism may be used to break light up into its constituent spectral hues (the colors of the rainbow). furthermore, prisms can be used to mirror light, or to split mild into additives with exceptional polarizations.

  • OP0504 Penta Prism

    A pentaprism is a five-sided reflecting prism used to deviate a beam of light by a constant 90°, even if the entry beam is not at 90° to the prism. Penta Prisms can be widely used in Plumb Level, Surveying, Alignment, Range finding, and Optical Tooling.

  • OP0512 Equilateral Prisms

    Equilateral Prisms are normally used optical component for dispersing the spectrum. Light incident at an oblique angle to the first face is dispersed according to its wavelength and emerges as a spectrum from the opposite face. 

  • OP509 Corner Cubes Retroreflectors

    Corner Cubes reflect a beam parallel to the incident ray, regardless of the relative orientation of the beam and prism. This reduces setup time for applications in which a single-faced mirror would be an impractical reflector. Our corner cubes function at large angles of incidence, ensuring precision alignment while requiring only minimal adjustment.

  • OP0508 Porro Prisms

    Porro Prism, named for its inventor Ignazio Porro, is a type of reflection prism used in optical instruments to alter the orientation of an image. It is often used in telescopic systems, imaging systems,observation systems, and ranging systems.

  • OP0507 Roof Prisms

    Roof Prisms, also as know Amici Prisms, can be widely used in the telescopic systems, imaging system, observation system, and ranging system.  

  • OP0510 Anamorphic Prisms

    Anamorphic Prisms is a simple and cheap prism which can be widely used in Beam adjustment. Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) can offer high-quality prisms and competitive price also quick delivery.

  • OP0511 C-Lens

    A C-Lens has the same function as a GRIN-Lens. It can be used for fiber collimators, isolators and circulators.

  • OP0506 Dove Prisms

    Dove Prism is a reflecting prism, which can be used as a rotator or a retroreflector.

  • OP0505 Right Angle Prisms

    Right Angle Prism is deviating or deflecting a beam of light with 90° or 180°. It is widely used in telescope, periscope and other optical systems. It is the best choice for devices and equipment.
