  • Patent number: 11429034
    Abstract: A light emitting device includes a first light-emitting-element row that includes light emitting elements arranged in a row in a main scanning direction and a second light-emitting-element row that includes light emitting elements arranged in a row in the main scanning direction and that is positioned in such a manner that at least a portion of the second light-emitting-element row overlaps the first light-emitting-element row in a sub scanning direction. The first and second light-emitting-element rows are each formed by arranging light-emitting-element array chips in each of which the light emitting elements are arranged in a row in the main scanning direction. In each of the light-emitting-element array chips, a pitch of the light emitting elements arranged in a row is changed from a first pitch to a second pitch, which is different from the first pitch, in a central region of the row of the light emitting elements.

  • Publication number: 20220091533
    Abstract: A light emitting device includes a light-emitting element row that includes light emitting elements arranged in a row in a main scanning direction, an optical element that is used for forming an electrostatic latent image by focusing light outputs of the light emitting elements and exposing a photoconductor to light and a control unit that controls light emission of the light-emitting element row. The light-emitting element row is divided into groups, and the control unit uniformly corrects a light intensity of each of the light emitting elements included in the groups on a group-by-group basis by a first correction method so as to correct density unevenness in the main scanning direction.
