A Study of Digital Paper with Guest-Host type Liquid Crystal Medium
Abstract:“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 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.
