RIGHT ANGLE PRISMS
Right Angle Prisms
are well suited for beam deviation and retro-reflection. They are often preferable to plane mirrors, because they are easier to mount and align. High throughput is attained when the hypotenuse is used in ...
are used as image rotators in a variety of opto-mechanical systems. They are a truncated form of the right angle prism, and use total internal reflection (TIR) to produce an inverted image which emerges from the...
deviate a beam by 90。without inverting or reversing the image. These prisms also have the property of constant deviation, which means that the 90。deviation angle applies to all rays transmitted by the effective...
operate on the priciple of total internal reflection (TIR). A beam entering perpendicular to the entrance / exit surface is reflected by the two roof surfaces and emerges parallel to itself. For applications in...
