Abstract
The factors which determine laser scanned resolution are reviewed and presented in concise form. Attention is devoted to the aperture shape factor and its numeric evaluation under a variety of shape, illumination and performance conditions. Practical derating factors are presented to account for aberrations. A Nomograph of the classic resolution equation is introduced to provide convenient access to key design parameters. Several examples of its application to typical scanner requirements are appended.
