1 November 1982 Ultrafast Laser Scanner Microscope-First Performance Tests
Author Affiliations +
First performance tests of an ultra-fast laser scanning microscope are reported. The objective lens has been perfected to reach the performance level specified in the design with respect to the spread function, freedom from spherical aberration and coma. The attained dimensional tolerances of the polygon spinner are given. The test results on operational pyramidal error suggest that the critical 4 arc sec limit is reached at 36,000 rpm. Excellent linearity and uniformity for the slow slide translation is attained with the PMI linear force motor. Over-all system performance is demonstrated with test scans of a bar pattern and biologic imagery.
