PRISM SYSTEMS

SwissOptic AGRequest Info
 
SwissOptic AG, a company in the Berliner Glas Group, has developed a flexible and rapid method for manufacturing precision prism systems. The technique relies on deterministic and numerically controlled processes for achieving tight tolerances. This approach improves the prism system transmitted wavefront by a factor of >3. A right-angle beamsplitter that consists of two prisms spatially separates an input beam into two beams, each containing different spectral components that leave the device on parallel output axes. It is possible to maintain a wavefront uniformity of both beams within rms ≤0.02λ at 633 nm.

GLOSSARY
beamsplitter
An optical device for dividing a beam into two or more separate beams. A simple beamsplitter may be a very thin sheet of glass inserted in the beam at an angle to divert a portion of the beam in a different direction. A more sophisticated type consists of two right-angle prisms cemented together at their hypotenuse faces. The cemented face of one prism is coated, before cementing, with a metallic or dielectric layer having the desired reflecting properties, both in the percentage of reflection...
