Knight Optical’s Pellin-Broca Prisms for Atomic Spectroscopy

01 Apr 2020

Knight Optical has a wide-ranging portfolio of Pellin-Broca Prisms suitable for atomic spectroscopy applications. Thanks to the high quality of our components and sound optical knowledge, our Pellin-Broca Prisms have become the optic of choice for engineers working on atomic spectroscopy systems; thanks to our ability to meet any specification.  

 Often used to separate beams of differing colours, Pellin-Broca Prisms are ideal for use in atomic spectroscopy or to separate outputs of a multi-line laser. Furthermore, what makes them such sought-after components for atomic spectroscopy applications is their structure. Unique in shape, a Pellin-Broca Prism's formation ideally deviates a beam of the given wavelength by 90º – with the wavelength selected by the angle of rotation of the prism.

 Alongside our readily available online stock – with next-day dispatch – we also offer Pellin-Broca Prisms as custom-made components. By opting for our customised optical components, not only can you choose project-specific shapes and sizes best suited to your application; but you can also specify the tolerance and optical coatings to enhance the operability of your atomic spectroscopy application.

 Typical specs:

Material: UV Fused Silica

Dimensional tolerances: +/- 0.2mm 

Angles: +/- 30 arcseconds

Surface figure: < 1 waves

Surface quality: 

Coatings: Antireflective (AR) coatings available on request

 Quality you can rely on

Quality is at the core of Knight Optical, and to ensure you profit from high-precision optics, we take the utmost care to ensure every component accurately meets your specifications. Offering unparalleled service, Knight Optical undertakes a full inspection of your optics from our ISO 9001:2015-certified, state-of-the-art Metrology Laboratory, followed by a meticulous visual examination by our dedicated QA department.
