Right Angle Prism may be used as a 90 degree reflector or 180 degree retroreflector. The prism deflect, deviate and rotate beams of light as well as dispersing their wavelengths. They usually used for beam deviation or as substrates for beamsplitters.
Wedge Prism is an optical element having plane-inclined surface, usually the faces are inclined toward one another at very small angles. Wedge Prisms divert light toward their thicker portions.
Equilateral prism is one kind of dispersion prism. It has three equal 60deg angles and it can separate a beam of white light into its component colors. Equilateral prism is always used for wavelength separating applications and spectrum analysis.
Corner Cube Prism is always used to reflect the beam entering the prism face, regardless of its orientation to the beam. Corner cubes are widely used where precision alignment is difficult.
