Paper Abstract

Early in the laser era, a wide variety of laser beam deflection techniques were explored. The most enduring among these have been acousto-optical and driven-mirror methods, which have been successfully applied in many electro-optical systems and are generally preferred for new systems. Some progress has also been made in electro-optical deflectors, which have produced deflection resolutions of hundreds of lines in both digital and phased-array embodiments. These methods are reviewed with respect to resolution. and scanning frequency capabilities now attainable.
