Abstract
Two-axis scanning is generally accomplished using two separate single-axis scanners. In order to improve the functionality of a dual-axis scanning system and eliminate aperture transfer problems, MedCam, Inc. has developed a two-axis single deflector scanner using MEMS and micromachining techniques. Various configurations of the MedCam microscanner have demonstrated large scan angles at high scan rates with aperture diameters ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm. The scanner is extremely compact and may be used in small, portable applications.
