MRS & Galvo

This animation shows the scanning ability of the VRD using the Mechanical Resonant Scanner (MRS) and galvanometer combination.

A beam of light originates from the laser diode, bounces off the MRS, then off the galvanometer, to a target plate.

The galvanometer rotates to deflect the laser beam vertically. The MRS vibrates to deflect the laser horizontally. When used in tandem, the galvanometer and MRS scan a raster pattern.
