Prisms for Nd:YAG lasers Prisms are blocks of optical material with flat polished sides arranged at precisely controlled angles to each other. Prisms are used at an optical system to deflect or deviate a beam of light. They can invert or rotate an image, disperse light into its component wavelengths, and be used to separate state of polarization.


Substrate material: KU-1, K8
Surface figure @ 633nm: l/10
Surface quality, scr/dig: 20/10
Clear aperture: exceeds central 85% of dimension
Dimensional tolerance, mm: +0/– 0.2
Angular deviation, mm: ± 0.3
Coating: dielectric, metal-dielectric, metallic; user specified
Damage threshold, J/cm2: 2-5, depending on coating spec.

Here is an example of the prism coating:
