Paper Abstract

An optical scanner that is relatively free of radiometric errors, with a nominal focal error resulting from a curvature of scan, is described. Except for the imaging lens, all the optical elements are plane mirrors. The scanner, while scanning contiguous lines in the object plane, images each line onto a linear array in the image plane. The scans are essentially linear with scan angle and symmetric about the axial ray.
