Overview

The Handbook of Optical and Laser Scanning reveals the fundamentals of controlling light beam deflection, factors in image fidelity and quality, and the newest technological developments currently impacting scanner system design and applications. This highly practical reference features a logical chapter organization, authoritative yet accessible writing, and hundreds of supporting illustrations.

Contributions from 27 subject specialists from the United States, Europe, and Asia afford a valuable range of perspectives as well as global coverage of optical and laser beam scanning.

With more than 550 works cited, this Handbook is essential for optical engineers, technologists, scientists, and undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
