Abstract
The objective of this project is to demonstrate a resonant scan lens (RSL) that increases the uniformity of beam scans projected from resonant optomechanical systems. While resonant optomechanical systems generate high-speed beam scans, large mechanical displacements, and robust operation from miniature form factors, scans projected from such systems lack uniformity across the field-of-view (FOV). In these systems, light projected from the scanner is focused by a scan lens and the outer, non-uniform portion of the scanned FOV is typically clipped or blanked. Z-senz will research and develop a resonant scanner and RSL to create a more uniform scan projected from the scan lens, thus improving system performance.
