Product Family Description

  • Ideal for Beam Steering
  • 0.5° - 15° Beam Deviation Options
  • Available Uncoated or Anti-Reflection Coated
  • Anamorphic Prism Pair Also Available

Wedge prisms can be used individually to deviate a laser beam a set angle, or two wedge prisms can be used together for beam steering applications. A single wedge prism's ability to deviate the angle of an incident beam is measured in Diopters with 1 diopter deviating the beam 1cm at a 1m working distance.

Two wedge prisms can be used as an anamorphic pair for beam shaping (to correct the elliptical shape of diode outputs). Or, a pair of wedge prisms can steer a beam anywhere within a circle described by the full angle 4θ, where θ is the deviation from a single prism. This beam steering is accomplished by rotating the two wedge prisms independently of each other, and is typically used to scan a beam to different locations in imaging applications.

Note: Beam deviation is shown in degrees and diopters. One diopter is 1cm of deviation at a distance of 1m from the prism.
