Abstract

Optically recorded Fresnel zone plates have proper spatial frequency characteristics for use as a laser scanner. Such grating scanners can easily be made and can scan over large cone angles with, however, severe aberrations of the diffracted laser beam at large deflection angles. Optically recorded Fresnel zone plates for laser beam scanning are investigated, and their aberration properties are analyzed. A method for removing the wavefront error caused by this type of zone plate is discussed, and the feasibility of the method is demonstrated.
