Abstract : The major area of effort this quarter concerned the preparation of the design plan which was submitted at the end of February. Research effort in electronics has been concentrated on the motor drive electronics, signal processing, and consideration of photodetectors. Mechanical engineering has continued the design and fabrication of the copy transport drive which is essential to the further study of the fiber optic scanning system and the optical performance of single layers of fiber. In the latter area, intensive study of the causes of photometric defects in copy exposed through a fiber sheet has indicated the necessity of extensive and detailed study of all aspects of fiber drawing and fiber sheet fabrication.
