Abstract

Space and surface 2-D scans produced by single or twin (deflecting) mirror scanning systems are studied. The geometrical and temporal distortions they may exhibit are analyzed. A new type of scanning system is proposed, free of geometrical distortion and capable of covering any desired region in space, from the equator to the pole of its attached spherical coordinates. The drive functions required for obtaining temporally uniform space and (cylindrical) surface scans are established.
