SELFOC Lens Array (SLA), one of Go!Foton’s key products, consists of multiple SELFOC lenses arranged in an array in an optical system and makes erect, 1:1 images. SLA allows the optical systems to be designed compactly and manufactured at low cost. Since it first contributed to introducing innovative new copiers, it is now being used in a wide variety of applications, such as fax machines, LED printers, digital copiers, scanners and composite machines. It operates as key components, in combination with our proprietary optical semiconductors, in optical information- processing units by which greater speed, higher resolution and better colorization are required.
The SELFOC Lens Array is used in 1:1 image transfer applications. The arrays are composed of one or more rows of lenses. The images from adjacent lenses overlap and form a continuous erect image. The SLA’s short total conjugate (TC), ranging from 9 to 80 mm, allows the designer to decrease the optical path length and, thus, reduce the overall size of the system.
