In this paper, a multi-dimensional KTN beam deflector is presented. The multi-scanning mechanisms, including space-charge- controlled beam deflection, composition gradient-induced beam deflection, and temperature gradient-induced beam deflection are harnessed. Since multi-dimensional scanning can be realized in a single KTN crystal, it represents a compact and cost-effective approach to realize multi-dimensional scanning, which can be very useful for many applications, including high speed, high resolution imaging, and rapid 3D printing.
