Classification and use of Prism

Prism can be used to deflect light at a specific angle. The prism can not only offset the light, but also adjust the direction of the image. The design of the prism will be used to determine how it interacts with light. When light enters the prism, the light will be reflected on a single or multiple surfaces before exiting, or the light will be refracted when it passes through the substrate.

Right angle prism

A prism is mainly a transparent object surrounded by two planes that intersect but are not parallel to each other. It is used to split light or disperse the light beam. The prism can not only shift the light, but also adjust the image direction. The processing materials of the prism include many kinds of optical glass, quartz, calcium fluoride, zinc selenide, germanium.

Prisms are divided into right-angle prisms, cube prisms, pentagonal prisms, Dove (Dove) prisms, roof prisms, wedge prisms, rhomboid prisms, Paul prisms, corner cube prisms, and half pentagonal prisms. Each prism is optically coated according to requirements.

The application areas of prisms are cameras, projectors, optical instruments, fingerprint scanners, collimators, rangefinders, imagers, mechanical sights, solar converters, rangefinders, erect telescopes, laser treatment equipment, laser measurement systems Wait.
