Abstract

The theory developed in Part I of this study [Y. Li, “Differential geometry of the ruled surfaces optically generated by mirror-scanning devices. I. Intrinsic and extrinsic properties of the scan field,” J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 28, 667 (2011)] for the ruled surfaces optically generated by single-mirror scanning devices is extended to multimirror scanning systems for an investigation of optical generation of the well-known ruled surfaces, such as helicoid, Plücker’s conoid, and hyperbolic paraboloid.
