(Wikipedia excerpt:.. “…An optical prism (P) is a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that are designed to refract light. At least one surface must be angled — elements with two parallel surfaces are not (P) . The traditional geometrical shape of an optical (P) is that of a triangular (P) with a triangular base and rectangular sides, and in colloquial use ” (P) ” usually refers to this type. Some types of optical prism are not in fact in the shape of geometric (P). (P) can be made from any material that is transparent to the wavelengths for which they are designed. Typical materials include glass, acrylic and fluorite.

A dispersive (P) can be used to break white light up into its constituent spectral colors (the colors of the rainbow) as described in the following section. Other types of (P) noted below can be used to reflect light, or to split light into components with different polarizations. Dispersive (P) are used to break up light into its constituent spectral colors because the refractive index depends on frequency; the white light entering the (P) is a mixture of different frequencies, each of which gets bent slightly differently. Blue light is slowed more than red light and will therefore be bent more than red light. .….”).
