Prisms are the most varied group of optical components. In general, a prism is a transmitting optical component limited by two surfaces intersecting along a line called the edge of the prism and making the refracting angle γ of the prism. Considering their use, prisms are divided into two groups:
• dispersion prisms that base on the dispersing properties of the optical material that they are made of
• reflection prisms that base on the reflection phenomenon inside the prism.
Solaris Optics produces many kinds of prisms, made of different materials and of different shapes.
