Written in an easy-to-read style, this comprehensive guide examines the currentknowledge on opto-mechanical laser beam scanning technology.Combining theoretical and practical aspects, Laser Beam Scanning discusses theapplications, performance, and design of holographic, polygonal, galvanometric, andresonant scanning systems.Bringing together the expertise of leading international authorities, this invaluable sourceprovides unique coverage on gas bearings for rotating scanning devices and windageassociated with polygonal scanners. This work also includes authoritative information onGaussian beam diameters and optical design of components and systems relating tooptical disk data storage.Containing time-saving chapter introductions and summaries, numerous illustrations andtables, useful definitions, and up-to-date references, this handy, on-the-job reference aidsoptical engineers and designers, electronic, electrical, and laser engineers; physicists; andgraduate-level students in optical engineering courses to apply laser beam scanning tonew designs successfully.
