Designed for educational purposes and science classroom demonstrations of refraction principles and light physics.
- Made of high quality acrylic
- Refractive index almost identical to optical glass
- Polished on all sides
High quality equilateral prisms are chip- and shatter-resistant, while having a refractive index very close to optical glass. They can produce a rainbow from a non-monochromatic light source such as sunlight. Acrylic is a softer material, so handle with care to prevent scratching.
Ordering information: The Acrylic Equilateral Prism Kit (470328-146) includes prisms 470328-132, 470328-134, and 470328-136.
