Improved performances of competing technologies have attracted applications that were previously the domain of oscillating mechanical scanners. The advances of computer control in the industry have benefited the laser-micromachining industry, which requires a high degree of flexibility and is well adapted to digital control. Improved scanner performances as well as greater choice and more economical-associated technologies have broadened the market for scanners and stimulated new applications. This entry provides a comprehensive overview of the parameters that shape the design and, subsequently, the applications of oscillating optical scanners.
