Abstract

The next generation of laser printers will have much increased resolution for higher print quality and for pictorial imaging Laser diodes, which are currently being used in low end printers because of very low cost and high reliability, are now available at high power (typically 10 to 20 mw) at very little additional cost Thus, it can be expected that in the future, laser diodes will show substantial cost advantage over helium-neon (HeNe) laser systems in the high resoIution, high speed end of the business as infra-red photoreceptors become more widely used
