Paper Abstract

Previously, we presented an on-axis linear-response linear-motion optical scanner. While the linear design is highly desired for engineering consideration, it was still lacking the scanning speed required for imaging applications. We here present a customized profile lens (CPL), tailored for high speed performance while maintaining the advantages of a linear response on-axis optical scanner. The device was built and tested experimentally on an optical bench. The test results demonstrate precise linear response and fast scanning speed, and revealed video frame rate scanning ability. The implementation of the CPLs in laser scanning systems is promising in improving the current 3D laser scanning microscopy systems by reducing the size, error, and complexity of the system, as well as other systems unitizing high speed laser scanning technique.
