Referring to Figure 1, SelfocT" lens arrays 2, 3 are generally considered to be the most appropriate imaging device for image exposure systems employing a silicon microdeflector array 4 as modulator. In Figure 1, a sheet-like beam of light 5 is impinged onto the row of flexible reflecting fingers 6 of the microdeflector array 4 by means of lens array 2 By applying a suitable voltage to different ones of the fingers 6 of the microdeflector array 4 in accordance with an image signal input, those portions of the light 5 striking the deflected fingers are reflected to a lens array 3 and imaged onto a photoreceptor 8 to expose the photoreceptor and form an image represented by the image signal input.
