The imaging properties of a scanning optical system that incorporates an axicon are presented. Beamshape characteristics including the axial distribution of the J(0) beam and its control and aberration effects arising from off-axis illumination are experimentally studied. These parameters are relevant when the axicon is used in an imaging system operating in the beam-scanning mode. The J(0) pattern produced by a blazed axicon transmittance grating is also presented.
