Abstract

In the application of phosphor lamps and reflectors as illumination sources for raster input scanners, obtaining uniform illumination across the scan line is a problem. Most attempts to resolve this problem and provide uniform illumination have concentrated on attempts to use light controlling apertures in front of the imaging lens or in association with the illumination lamp.
