BARRINGTON, NJ, July 23, 2009 – Edmund Optics Inc. has introduced its infrared right-angle prisms that are used to achieve a 90º light path bend. They are available in three substrate options to cover a wide variety of applications.

EdmundOptics-IR-Right-Angle.jpgCalcium fluoride, a material with a low index of refraction of 1.434, provides excellent transmission properties from 190 nm to 7 µm. This substrate is suited for applications throughout the ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral regions. Germanium is a dense material with a high index and is suitable for use in applications in the 3-to 12-µm wavelength region where the optical path length must be maximized. Zinc selenide, commonly used in a variety of CO2 laser applications, features high transmission from 1 to 16 µm.

These uncoated prisms use total internal reflection for the right-angle path bend and are suitable for use with well-collimated light sources. The prisms with a calcium fluoride substrate are available uncoated in sizes of 12.7, 25.4 and 38.1 mm. Those with a germanium or a zinc selenide substrate are available uncoated in 12.7- and 25.4-mm sizes.

Custom antireflection and metallic coating options are available to meet customers’ specific requirements.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
