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.
