New Toner Display Device Using Conductive Toner and Charge Transport Layer
Abstract:A new toner display device using a conductive toner and charge transport layer has been developed. In this new toner display device, the toner movement is controlled by a switch of electric field polarity between two transparent electrodes. Two plates with the charge transport thin layer, CTL, are placed opposing each other, leaving a certain distance in between by using spacer. The charge transport materials are used as same as an organic photoreceptor in an electrophotography. The conductive toners on the CTL were charged by the hole injection from CTL to toner particles, and move to the front electrode. The toner particles are fixed on the front electrode due to the coulombic force between the toner and electrode across the CTL. The toner particles can be removed and moved toward to the back electrode by applying reverse electric field. The image can be recorded and erased easily by switching of electric field polarity.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
