Paper Abstract

We proposes the optical design of a 3D scanner using only two off-axis conic mirrors. We scan in transversal directions with rotations of one of the mirrors and the longitudinal scan with displacements along the axis of the other mirror. Within the principal parameters for the design of the conic mirrors is considered the entrance pupil diameter, the f-number of the primary mirror and the distance from the vertex of the primary mirror to the image plane. For the analysis of the image awe are considering the following characteristic: Spot Size, the RMS of the wavefront, the point-spread-function and the Strehl ratio. Finally, we calculate the maximum scan volume for the designed scanner.
