Abstract

A unitary fiberoptic plate is employed to transport images from a flat document platen A-Ato a curved surface B-B. The surface B-Bis an arc with a radius R, which is the radius formed by a scan mirror at the axis of its rotation. From the scan mirror, the light image passes through a lens, reflects from a fixed mirror, and is deposited on the surface of an electrostatographic drum. The fiberoptic plate has ends E which are less than one inch thick, and the plate transports the image

A unitary fiberoptic plate is employed to transport images from a flat document

platen A~Ato a curved surface B~B. The surface B~Bis an arc with a radius R, which is the radius formed by a scan mirror at the axis of its rotation. From the scan mirror, the light image passes through a lens, reflects from a fixed mirror, and is deposited on the surface of an electrostatographic drum. The fiberoptic plate has ends E which are less than one inch thick, and the plate transports the image

from the platen to the curved surface B-B with a minimum loss of light.
