Custom Right Angle Prisms
Custom right-angle prisms are utilized in a wide range of applications such as imaging systems, periscopes, surveying instruments, laser systems, and more. The ability to customize materials, coatings, sizes, and angles makes them versatile tools in optical design. It’s an optical element with a rectangular cross-section that has three mutually perpendicular faces, with two of the faces forming a 90-degree angle.
We offer K9 standard precision right-angle prisms with dimensions ranging from 1mm to 50mm, K9 high-precision right-angle prisms, UV-fused silica standard precision right-angle prisms, and UV-fused silica high-precision right-angle prisms. Coatings include: aluminum-coated slanted surfaces, visible (VIS) anti-reflective coated right-angle surfaces, near-infrared (NIR) anti-reflective coated right-angle surfaces, UV anti-reflective coated right-angle surfaces; aluminum-coated right-angle surfaces, VIS anti-reflective coated slanted surfaces, NIR anti-reflective coated slanted surfaces, and more.
Applications of right-angle prisms include:
- Periscopes: Redirecting light in compact optical systems.
- Surveying: Leveling and angle measurement devices.
- Imaging Systems: Image rotation and reflection.
- Laser Systems: Redirecting laser beams precisely.
- Optical Instruments: Light path manipulation.
- Camera Viewfinders: Image orientation adjustment.
- Beam Steering: Controlled light direction change.
- Alignment Tools: Optical component alignment.
- Optical Isolators: Directing light in one direction.
