Wedge prism is an optical element having plane-inclined surfaces, usually the faces are inclined toward one another at very small angles. Wedges divert light toward their thicker portions.
Wedge prism is commonly used in laser system for eliminating the reflections from the second surface or for beam steering. Standard and broadband antireflection coatings are available upon request, see our standard optics components below.
We supply optical wedge prism.
