No, in imaging applications, they will displace the optical centerline by the prism length “L” without inverting the image.

The features of a rhomboid prism include lateral displacement of beam, displacement of optical axis without inverting image, input and output beams parallel to ±30 arcseconds, and beam displacing Dove Prisms also available.

The dimensional tolerance of a rhomboid prism is +/-0.05 mm and the angle tolerance is ±2 arc minutes.

Rhomboid prisms are used to shift an incident beam without angular deviation or orientation change.

The materials used to make a rhomboid prism are N-BK7/N-SF11 or other glass materials.
