    Optical Prisms

    • Product Name: Dove Prisms

    Product overview

    Named for its inventor Harting Dove, dove prisms (with antireflection coatings on
    the ends) completely invert an image by 180 degrees. If the prism is rotated about
    its axis the image will rotate at twice the rate of rotation of the prism. Dove prisms
    provide a convenient and precise method of rotating a beam. The long length
    and square profile makes them easy to mount in a cylindrical sleeve.
    Dove prisms need to be used with collimated or near-collimated beams because
    of the very limited field of view. When used as an image inverting prism the hy-
    potenuse face acts as a TIR surface and is therefore normally not coated.
    Therefore. it is important to keep this surface clean.
    Scitlion also offers DP dove prisms AR coated on the hypotenuse for use in
    beam-folding applications. As the Sl and S2 sides are used in a total internal reflec-
    tion (TIR) manner it is extremely important to keep these two surfaces clean.
