Paper Abstract

Acousto-optic laser deflectors with 24UU and 4UU0 spot resolution have been proven in several working systems built at Isomet. These deflectors, made of single crystal Te02, offer the advantage of no moving parts, no facet errors and no realignment because of bearing wear. The high resolution Te02 deflectors have been developed to the point where they can offer an attractive alternative to mechanical scanning; for very high resolution at high speeds (50 spots/µs), A-0 scanning is superior.
