Prisms have several uses in optical systems. For example they can deviate a ray, disperse white light into the visible spectrum or erect an inverted image. Right angle prisms 90o-45o-45o are used for accomplishing a 90° bend due to total internal reflection. Depending on the mode of incidence of light on the inclined face, this prism may have an inverting effect with or without deviation.
