This paper provides a basis for using dispersive prism systems to operate in a wide spectral range in polarized light. A technique is proposed for choosing the necessary pairs of optical media for prism systems with quasi-linear chromatism, and tables of pairs of glasses for operation in the near-UV-visible region are presented. It is shown that the energy efficiency of such systems can approach the theoretically possible value. © 2005 Optical Society of America
