Corner Cube Prisms

Corner Cube Prisms are designed to reflect any ray or beam entering the prism face, regardless of the orientation of the prism, back onto itself. A mirror will only do that at the normal incidence. As a result, corner cubes are ideal where precision alignment is difficult or time-consuming. Retroreflectors will function even at very large angles of incidence. Due to their complex shape, however, corner cubes can often be difficult to mount. http://www.edmundoptics.com/onlinecatalog/displayproduct.cfm?productID=2056 (external link)
