One of the ways to improve the heating efficiency of a heater is to eliminate the passivation layer of the heater by using TaSiO for the heater material, whereby the heater surface becomes thermally oxidized. Rapid boiling of water occurs at around 300°C; therefore, it is necessary for the fabrication condition of the oxidation layer to correspond to a temperature higher than the boiling temperature. In a pulse drive during printing, it is also necessary to keep the heat at a temperature lower than that of thermal oxidization to prevent deterioration. As a result of observing the generation of bubbles and measuring the heater temperature, it was confirmed that within the range of heating velocity in this experiment, boiling starts at around 300°C, and it was also possible to understand pulse control in thermal ink jet printheads to maintain the heater at an appropriate temperature.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
