Development of a New Generation Surface Layer for an a-Si Photoreceptor Drum
Abstract:We looked into the relationship between the unclear image problem and the surface free energy of an a-Si photoreceptor drum and found that the unclear image problem does not happen when low surface free energy is maintained.
We succeeded in getting a low surface free energy by fluorination (a-C:H:F) using CF4 etching and achieved anti-oxidation improvement by optimizing a-C:H film deposition. Repeated steps of a-C:H film deposition and CF4 etching were applied to fluorinate deeper into the layer.
As a result, an ideal drum was produced which did not cause any unclear images in tests.

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.
