Vibrational spectroscopic methods are nowadays widely used in the analysis of materials both in xy- and z-directions. Needs to understand durability, especially light fastness, mechanisms in ink jet and toner adhesion mechanisms in electrophotography call for analytical techniques.

Sample sets to study applicability of various FTIR and Raman techniques to ink-paper interaction analysis included ink jet prints exposed to different amounts of light energy, and electrophotographic prints fixed in different conditions. FTIR-ATR and Raman measurements in xy- and z-directions were found to be the most promising techniques, since the differences between the samples were revealed most distinctly. The confocal Raman technique proved to be applicable to depth profiling of colorant and toner. Stepscan PAS can be used for depth profiling of electrophotographic prints.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
