Tower Optical Corp. has announced the MP-50 series microprisms, which can be used with the company's microminiature wave plates for fiber optics and laser sources. The company says the solid-state beam-handling systems can be packaged in a VLSI-like housing because of the small size of the prisms. The right-angle devices measure 0.5 x 0.5 x customer-specified length of 0.5 mm or greater and are manufactured from fused silica quartz crystal. Antireflection and reflection coatings are available for the legs and the hypotenuse, respectively.
