Prisms are commonly used in spectroscopy for dispersing or controlling the direction or polarisation of light. This can be helpful for splitting the incoming light into its wavelength components to maximize the information recorded with a multichannel detector, such as a CCD camera, or performing polarizationcontrolledexperiments. Using different polarisations of light can help assign certain spectral features, such as the nature of vibrational modes in a Raman experiment.
