What is a prism, about the classification and field

A prism is mainly a transparent object surrounded by two intersecting but not parallel planes, used to divide or disperse light beams; A prism cannot offset light rays and can also be used to adjust the direction of the image.

The processing materials for prisms include many types of optical glass, quartz, calcium fluoride, zinc selenide, and germanium. Prisms are divided into right angle prisms, cubic prisms, pentagonal prisms, Dove prisms, ridge prisms, wedge angle prisms, rhombic prisms, Paul’s prisms, pyramid prisms, and semi pentagonal prisms. Each prism is optically coated as required.

Prism applications include cameras, projectors, optical instruments, fingerprint meters, collimators, rangefinders, image detectors, mechanical sight glasses, solar converters, rangefinders, orthophoto telescopes, laser equipment, laser measurement systems, and more.
