Hyperion Optics supplies a range of prisms to meet UV-Visible-NIR applications, with high surface quality and tight tolerance angles. Our materials selection ranges from flint/crown glasses, fused silica, ZnSe, CaF2 etc.
For custom need, such as cemented prism or additional treatment on the surfaces, please have us assess your requirement, our engineers are always happy to assist.
Right angle prisms turn light through 90° by internal reflection from the hypotenuse, or 180° from two right angle surfaces. When the light incident angle is perpendicular to the right angle surfaces, the light will be reflected at the surface of glass/air interface.
When the input light is incident from hypotenuse surface, the light will be fully reflected in the glass / air interface at the right angle surfaces. The second total reflection occurs at next right angle surface.
Compared to regular reflective mirrors, right angle prisms are easily to be mounted; further its reliable mechanical stress has better stability and strength. Hence right angle prisms have been considered as suitable alternatives to reflective mirrors in various applications.
