Paper Abstract

The banana mirror system is an alternative approach for the design of telemetric laser scanners with a large scan format instead of using an f-(theta) scan lens. We developed an analytical model and a combination of a hyperbolic and a parabolic cylindrical mirror. This model is called the Ideal Scanner Model. We will introduce the concept of conical deflection and present the basic features of the ISM theory.
