Edmund Optics has introduced its new Techspec broadband anti-reflection (BBAR) Coated Hypotenuse Right Angle Prisms, which feature a wide wavelength range from 350nm-2,200nm and are ideal for applications that require a single axis retroreflector and optical systems with space limitations.
The new prisms provide a tight angle tolerance of ±15 arcsec, reducing ray deviation and eliminating the need for recalibrations of other parts of the optical system. The prisms are manufactured using an N-BK7 substrate and feature a high-precision 40-20 surface quality, λ/8 surface flatness, and +/-0.1mm dimensional tolerance.
The Techspec BBAR Coated Hypotenuse Right Angle Prisms can be coated with both VIS and NIR coatings, which reduce surface reflections in their designated wavelength ranges for increased total transmission. Eight standard VIS 0 and NIR 1 coated prisms are available with hypotenuse lengths of 14.1mm to 70.7mm and legs from 10mm to 50mm. Custom sizes are also available.
