Paper Abstract

Specifying a rotating polygonal mirror and drive system involves a careful analysis of the complete optical scanning system it is used in and the specific effects of each characteristic of the beam deflector on system performance. This would appear on the surface to be straightforward, however there are subtleties that may evade the most conscientious and diligent specifier. The intent here is to identify same pitfalls the specifier should be alert to.
