With modern optical technology, there is a great demand for devices capable of steering a laser beam at high speed. A hybrid electrooptical scanner and an electromechanical scanner capable of two-dimensional (2-D) laser beam scanning are demonstrated. This device can scan a laser beam in 2-D. A 1° scanning angle in the horizontal axis at 50 Hz using electrooptic scanning and a 5.23° scanning angle in vertical axis at 25.6 kHz using piezoelectric scanning are shown.
