Class Information
Number: 359/211
Name: Optical: systems and elements > Deflection using a moving element or medium (offsetting or changing at least a portion of the beam) > Using a periodically moving element (periodic change of optically reflecting, refracting or diffracting element) > Including transmissive type moving element > Having moving prism
Description: Subject matter including one or more transparent bodies bounded in part by two plane surfaces which are angularly related (i.e., not parallel), at least one of these surfaces being internally reflecting or refracting to impinging incident light.
