Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to offer a working set of principles to allow anyone with adequate general background but no specific laser optical experience to be aware of the various parameter trade offs required to design a laser scanning system. A set of formulae are developed to determine the parameters involved in the specification of a laser scanning system and, unless stated, all units are centimeters and radians. The discussion assumes a simple Gaussian beam intensity distribution of the lowest order -- TEM00 The effect of higher order modes is considered briefly at the end of the paper.
