Paper Abstract

The process of specifying a pre-objective scan lens involves consideration of first-order constraints different from that of an imaging lens. A simplified formula has been developed to combine the inter-related properties of wavelength, scan length, scan angle, entering beam diameter, and spot size based on both theory and empirical results. Other aspects such as entrance pupil distance, linearity, telecentricity and resolution are investigated to allow for reasonable tolerancing as well as to gauge design complexities and production costs.
