An optical system incorporating two closely spaced cylindrical mirrors is described. By properly orienting the mirrors in space, an incident beam can be focused at any desired point within a large volume. This simple periscopic system, which provides variable focal lengths and deflection angles, is applicable to optical or milimeter wave transmission systems lying along irregular paths. A paraxial ray theory of the system is given, as well as ewperimental results.
