Author(s): Leo Beiser

Paper Abstract

In forming an historical perspective of the development of optical scanning, we ask a probing question: What was the first major optical scanning innovation? We offer one having unexpected attributes, and seek audience ideas. We then demonstrate the pioneering work in Optical Scanning for information transfer, some created long before we arrived on the scene. Our job has been and is: Make it <b>Faster</b> and <b>Better</b>. The body of the presentation addresses how our technology advanced to this useful state.
