Paper Abstract

A well known optical scheme of an Infrared Linescan equipment has been considered. All the optical elements of the scanner are defined with reference to a rectangular coordinate system by a set of points. Expressions are derived to represent each of these points as a set of coordinates in terms of important scanner parameters. By computing and displaying these points including the raypaths, for any set of scanner parameters, the configuration can be quickly studied and optimized. A set of graphs indicating the optimum position of the rotating prism of the scanner for a few typical values of prism size and focal length of the parabolic mirrors are given.
