Knight Optical’s Premium-Quality Rhomboid Prisms for Imaging Applications

08 Jul 2021

Knight Optical – the leading supplier of on-spec, metrology-tested optical components – has a wide-ranging portfolio of Rhomboid Prisms available from stock or as made-to-order components

Commonly employed for imaging applications across a variety of industries, our Rhomboid Prisms are designed to displace a beam laterally while maintaining its direction. What's more, they rely on total internal reflection and therefore, do not often need to be coated. 

Available from stock or – as with all our components – as custom-made optics for seamless integration with your project, our Rhomboid Prisms meet a diverse range of requirements sought by a diverse range of systems. By opting for tailor-made optical components, you can specify the shape, size, optical coatings and tolerances best suited to your project. 

Typical specs:

Material: N-BK7 (or equivalent)

Dimensional tolerances: +/- 0.2mm 

Angles: +/- 3 arcminutes

Surface figure: < 1 waves
