Penta Prisms are used to define right angles in optical systems. Penta Prisms, which provide right handed images, feature a ray deviation of 90°. Penta Prisms are five-sided prisms and unaffected by slight movements. Edmund Optics offers a variety of Penta Prisms for optimal performance in the Ultraviolet (UV), Visible, or Infrared (IR) spectrums.
Edmund Optics features the world’s largest inventory of off-the-shelf optical components, including a wide range of Prisms. Edmund Optics’ Penta Prisms are offered mounted or unmounted, or in N-BK7 or UV Fused Silica Substrates. C-Mounted Penta Prisms are ideal for easy integration into C-Mount systems. These Prisms are mounted in black, anodized aluminum housings with two female C-Mount apertures. N-BK7 Penta Prisms, which are ideal for applications in the visible spectrum, are offered in a range of sizes or anti-reflection coating options, including MgF2 or VIS 0°. UV Fused Silica Penta Prisms are offered uncoated or with a UV-AR anti-reflection coating. UV Fused Silica Penta Prisms are ideal for applications in the Ultraviolet (UV), Visible, or Near-Infrared (NIR).
