Optical Dove prism

Dove prisms have an unusual and very interesting characteristic, if you look through the prism and rotate it around a longitudinal axis, the image rotates through twice the angle through which the dove prism itself rotates.


● Uncoated: Rotate an Image by Twice the Prism Rotation Angle

● Uncoated: Image is Left-Handed

● Coated: Reflect Any Beam Entering the Prism Face Back onto Itself

● Coated: Image is Right-Handed




Pattern Recognition

Imaging Behind Detectors or Around Corners

Optical prisms are polyhedra made of transparent materials (e.g., glass, crystal, etc.) that are used to redirect light to a specified angle. Optical prisms are ideal for light deflection and for reorienting images. The design of an optical prism determines how light interacts with it. When light enters an optical prism, it either reflects off a single surface or several surfaces, or it refracts as it passes through the substrate.

China Star Optics can provide different kinds of optical prisms like Dove prism, Right angle prism, Wedge prism, Pyramid prism, Polarizing Beam Splitter(PBS) Cube.

If you want to know more information about a prism, such as the use and refractive index of a right angle prism, please contact us.
