Paper Abstract

We will present the design of a greatly simplified acousto-optic (A/O) scanning system which allows a change of wavelength in less than a second (and in principal between 2 TV lines). A/O deflectors now available with a 9.3 mm circular entrance pupil (rather than the 2 mm X 12 mm pupils previously used) eliminate the need for costly anamorphic beam shaping optics. The resulting simplified optic system can be straightforwardly corrected for different excitation wavelengths.
