    Specialty Prisms

    Specialty Prisms are Prisms that are unique in shape or purpose. Edmund Optics offers a variety of Specialty Prisms to choose from, including Rod Optical Lenses, Cone Optical Mirrors, Anamorphic Prism Pairs, Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPCs), Rhomboid Prisms, or Wedge Prisms. Specialty Prisms may not be designed for typical Prism applications such as ray deviation or image translation.

    Cone Optical Mirrors are ideal for applications requiring 360° of illumination. When light strikes the peak of the cone, it is circularly reflected around the Cone Optical Mirror. Anamorphic Prism Pairs are ideal for expanding laser beams in single dimensions, such as turning a laser diode’s elliptical beam into a circular one. Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPCs) are used to collect light from distant sources. The collected light is then concentrated towards the more narrow portion of the CPC utilizing total internal reflection. Rhomboid Prisms are ideal for imaging applications where the optical axis may need to be displaced without inverting the image. Wedge Prisms utilize refraction instead of reflection to deviate a laser beam.
