Wedge prism has plane inclined surfaces. It deflects light toward its thicker portion. It can be used individually to deflect a beam to a special angle. Two wedge prisms work together can assembly an anamorphic prism to correct the elliptical shape of laser beam. The wedge prism is ideal for laser beam steering applications. By combining two wedge prisms which can be rotate individually, we can direct the input beam to anywhere within the cone angle θd, where θd is 4x the specified angular deviation of one wedge. We can make deviation angle from 1deg to 10deg. Other angle can be realized upon request.
