Paper Abstract

It is well known that a monolithic arrayed laser diode is effective for a high-speed laser beam printer. In terms of the angular relation between the arrayed direction and the laser beam scanning line, two typical laser scanning optical systems using a monolithic arrayed laser diode are comparatively discussed in this paper. As for the first optical system, the arrayed direction is slightly tilted from the scanning line's direction. While this system has an advantage of easiness in the data processing technique in comparison with the other optical system, we have to pay attention in designing and manufacturing this optical system in terms of accuracy and complicateness. The second optical system forms a striking contrast to the first. The laser's arrayed direction of the second optical system is perpendicular to the laser beam scanning line. In this system, we need no such particular designing nor manufacturing as in the first one described above, but interlacing scanning method and the relevant data processing technique. Through comparing the above two systems, we are discussing optical issues. As the conclusion, we think, the second system of interlacing method would become popular in consideration of the future advances in data processing technique.
