Optical Prisms

Optical Prisms.

A prism is a transparent optical element with flat polished faces that refract light. The angle, position, and number of faces define the type and function. A prism requires at least two of the flat surfaces must have an angle between them. The exact angles between the surfaces will depend on the application. The usual geometrical shape is that of a triangular prism with a triangle shaped base and rectangular sides. Prisms can be made from any material that can transmit the wavelengths required for the design. Typical materials include BK7, Fused Silica, Germanium, ZnSe etc
