Glossary of Printing Terms:
Prism

In geometry a body with two parallel planes; in optics a body used to reflect light and generate a light spectrum.

A prism is made of material that has a greater angle of refraction than its surrounding, which means that beams of light striking the short side of the prism vertically are totally reflected from the inside at the long side and exit at the second short side.
