Product Family Description

  • Ray Deviation of 90°
  • Right Handed Image
  • Optical Tool for Defining a Right Angle
  • Additional Penta Prism Options Available

Penta prisms are five-sided prisms featuring a ray deviation of 90° and a right handed image. The UV-AR coated options also have aluminized reflecting surfaces for increased efficiency. Slight movement of the prism does not affect the true right angle at which light rays are reflected, making a penta prism the ideal optical tool for defining a right angle in an optical system. TECHSPEC® UV Fused Silica Penta Prisms are made from UV fused silica which features low thermal expansion and excellent transmission throughout the UV, VIS, and NIR spectral ranges.
