“Digital Paper” was recently proposed as a new medium that offers the advantages of both softcopy and hardcopy. This study examines the possibility of surface electric charge driving a liquid crystal medium using an ion projection head for realizing Digital Paper.

A guest-host type liquid crystal sheet medium was prepared. An ion projection head with charge dot density of 300 dpi was used for surface charge formation.

It was confirmed that white images could be repeatedly formed on a black background by ion projection followed by image erasure to the black background by heating. It is demonstrated that this sheet medium has ideal characteristics; it reproduces the viewing angle and flexibility of paper. This method is thus promising as a candidate for realizing Digital Paper.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
