Ross Optical Industries Datasheets for Optical Prisms

Optical prisms are blocks of optical material with flat, polished sides that are arranged at precisely controlled angles to one another. They are used in optical systems to deflect or redirect beams of light. They can invert or rotate images, disperse light into component wavelengths, and separate states of polarization.

Product Name Notes
A five-sided prism containing two reflecting surfaces at 45° to each other, and two perpendicular faces for the entering and emerging beams. It does not invert nor revert the image.
Also called a roof prism, the Amici prism is a right angle prism that's hypotenuse has been replaced by a 90-degree roof. The corners that do not affect the clear...
Also called corner cubes, these prisms are made of solid glass that allow the entering rays to emerge parallel to itself, only in the opposite direction of propagation, regardless of...
Dove prism is a truncated version of right angle prism. A beam entering parallel to the hypotenuse face is reflected internally and emerges parallel to its incident direction. Dove prisms...
Right angle prisms are optical elements having at least three polished faces inclined relative to each other at 45-90-45 degrees. They can be used as total internal reflectors, hypotenuse face...
These prisms are usually round and have two flat sides that are at a small angle to each other. They are used for beam steering in laser applications. The wedge...
These prisms have three equal 60° angles and are used as dispersing prisms.
