1 January 1987 Size Optimization For A Rotating Polygonal Mirror Scanner
Author Affiliations +
It is shown that the optimum size of a polygonal mirror scanner for a given scan angle, entrance pupil diameter and beam folding angle of an afocal optical system is determined by the position of the axis of rotation with respect to the centre of the exit pupil. Equations for the minimal size polygon and its location are derived in the present work. This optimum size is shown to yield a facet length identical to that of a planar oscillating scanner mirror placed at the same exit pupil and for the same given parameters.
