    Abstract: An actuator according to the present invention includes a support 20 that supports a driven unit 10, and outer axis driver units DSa, DSb that are separate and independent from the support 20 and configured to rotate the support 20. This configuration allows providing a sufficient rotational driving force around the outer, second axis AX2 by reducing size and weight of the related rotatable components and thus by reducing rotational moments thereof, and also allows increasing the resonance frequency of the support 20. As such, the actuator according to this embodiment provides a high-performance drive operation such as a raster scanning operation, for example.
