Frequently Asked Questions

Dove Prisms use total internal reflection (TIR) to produce an inverted image which emerges from the exit surface without deviation.

As the prism is rotated about its optical axis, the image will rotate at twice the angular rate of the prism.

Dove Prisms are used as image rotators in a variety of opto-mechanical systems.

The dimensional tolerance of Dove Prisms is + 0.000", – 0.010".

Dove Prisms can be made of BK7, UVFS, FS, or CaF2.
