Abstract
A systematic approach to the design of scanning systems is presented, based on characteristics of the scan locus generated by rotating mirrors or polygons and their transformation by optical components. Examples include a simple 2D scanner, a high-efficiency line scanner and 2D scanner, a simple flat-field telecentric scanner and a line scanner with constant footprint.
