Paper Abstract

Holographix, Inc. has developed a family of holographic laser scanning systems for printing applications. These systems have been designed to significantly reduce production costs without compromising print quality. Holographix has been awarded several patents on its designs and licenses its technology to OEMs. The optical designs for these systems, developed with Optical Research Associates (ORAR), range from `low-end' laser scanners for 300 dpi and 600 dpi desktop printers to prepress scanners with 1200 dpi and greater resolution. The designs are well corrected for linearity and line bow. Unique features of these designs are telecentricity at the focal plane and the achromatic correction for both cross-scan and in-scan errors due to wavelength variations. The achromatization capability allows the use of laser diode sources for a major cost savings and telecentricity improves in-use performance. This paper briefly describes the concept of holographic laser scanning and key features of the optical designs.
