A brief summary is given of the principles of operation of a laser image recorder used for spectrum analysis. A special purpose acousto-optic modulator is an essential element of the image recorder. Remarks are made on inhouse efforts in this area. A discussion is presented on some design considerations for extending operation of the recorder to cover bandwidths of 500 MHz.
