The transport line relies on a critical system of fast transverse raster scanning magnets (RSMs) to dilute the beam on the spallation target.
The examples of the scales made by raster scanning technology are developed in the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy.
LCS delivers 3D tracking capabilities with its flexible two-axis steering that provides standard raster scanning for imaging, and custom scan patterns for tracking targets and features.
Hudson's scanner's sweep times are measured in nanoseconds, not milliseconds, and it is capable of vector scanning techniques, as opposed to raster scanning, a capability that is unique to all exiting mechanical scanners.
This speed will allow precise high-speed scanning in two dimensions and will provide omni-directional reading of 1D and stacked bar-codes, as well as 2D raster scanning for matrix codes.
This technique, called raster scanning, is commonly found in televisions and computer monitors that employ scanned electron beams, but according to the company, it is not the most efficient way to draw an image with a system that employs mechanical scanners.
Using innovative raster scanning technology, the MEBES eXara system provides the high quality of electron-beam mask writing with consistent high throughput, regardless of pattern complexity.
Commenting on the system's technical features, Ultratech Group Vice President Richard Williams noted, "The V2000's vector writing strategy is clearly more efficient than raster scanning -- the alternative writing approach -- which requires the beam to scan continuously back and forth over the entire mask surface.
