How to Measure a Right Angle Prism
Previously difficult measurements of right angle prisms are now possible with the spectrally controlled source (SCI). With the narrow coherence and easy setup even micro-prism measurement is possible.
Measuring right angle prisms is complicated by back reflections from the multiple faces of the prism. Äpre SCI technology separates the faces, enabling easy measurement of all faces, angles, and the transmitted wavefront.
