Paper Abstract

Several designs for anamorphic beam shaping optics will be described, applying a unique zoom lens principle based on Gaussian beam propagation. These systems were developed for use in medium resolution polygon-type scanners employing either gas or semiconductor lasers. Their primary advantage lies in the achievement of an independence of magnification parameters in orthogonal meridians within the constraints of source size variation and correction of facet pyramid errors.
