Abstract

The focus path of a laser beam deflected by a prismatic polygon mirror was calculated. It is shown that the larger the focal distance of the objective or the polygon radius, the closer the focus path approaches a straight scanning line. Especially in the case of small pattern scanning, a remarkably small deviation between actual focus path and straight scanning line can be achieved by suitable sizing and arrangement of the optical elements.
