20 September 1982 Catadioptric Laser Scanning System With Dynamic Field Flattening
Author Affiliations +
A novel way to achieve a flat field large format plotter is described. The system makes use of two spherical mirrors and a small spherical aberration correcting element and can be made achromatic. The field flattening is dynamically obtained, making use of a polygonal scanner reflecting a non-collimated laser beam. An implementation example is given in which diffraction limited performance is achieved over a 436 mm wide format (17") with a spot measuring 17.5 μm at FWHM, employing a HeCd laser as the light source. A systematic way for the system's design is described.
