Paper Abstract

This paper describes a six-sided single-piece prism which disperses light without deviating it. The prism angles are chosen so that the light undergoes four total internal reflections in the prism. This design eliminates the need for the highly reflective surface coatings commonly used to prevent light loss in direct vision prisms. The prism's performance was demonstrated using light from an argon ion laser. Some applications are suggested.
