Prism Type
          The shape of a prism determines its effect on a beam of light or image.
   Your choices are...         
   Anamorphic       Anamorphic prism pairs are used mainly to correct the asymmetric beam shape of a laser diode from elliptical to near circular shape. 
   Corner Cube Retroreflector       Corner Cube Retroreflector prisms are designed to reflect any ray or beam entering the prism face, regardless of the orientation of the prism, back onto itself. 
   Dove       Dove prisms are a truncated form of right angle prism which use total internal reflection to produce an image that emerges without deviation but is inverted. The main application for these prisms is as image rotators. 
   Equilateral       Equilateral prisms are used routinely as dispersing elements where spectral separation is required. They provide better brightness than diffraction gratings. 
   Penta       Penta Prisms deviate an incident beam through 90 degrees without inverting or reversing it. They also show constant deviation of 90 degrees, regardless of prism orientation. Five sides when viewed in cross section. 
   Rhomboid       Rhomboid prisms are used primarily for controlling and redirecting the optical path without affecting the image orientation. 
   Right Angle       Right Angle Prisms can be used to direct a beam of light at 90 degrees from the incident, or to retroreflect a beam. 
   Roof       Roof Prisms, also known as Amici Roof Prisms or Right Angle Roof Prisms, invert and reverse an image as it is deflected 90 degrees. 
   Wedge       Wedge prisms are mainly used with laser beams, either for elimination of reflections from the second surface, or for beam steering. 
   Other       Any other prism type not listed.

   SF10 Glass       SF10 has a wavelength range of 400-2400 nm and an angular dispersion of 2°58'25". 
   UV-grade Fused Silica       UV grade fused silica offer improved transmission in the ultraviolet region compared to crown glass. It's wavelength range is 200-2500 nm and has an angular dispersion of 0°34'01". 
   Other Material       Any other prism material not listed.

Prism Coatings
   Reflective Coating?       Reflective Coating helps reduce loss of light due to transmission. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Antireflection Coating?       Antireflection Coating helps reduce loss of light due to reflection. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
