Abstract
During turn-around a scanning mirror may be subjected to severe angular acceleration which can cause surface deflection of sufficient magnitude to distort the image significantly. In this paper a solution is developed for a circular mirror for a particular method of application of the direction-reversing forces. Parametric curves are presented which allow computation of the deflection as a function of mirror size and point of load application. An example is computed in which the deflection is a significant fraction of the optical wave length.
