Conventionally, electric fields in a development nip are often calculated for well-defined patterns (solid areas and isolated lines) or for a given charge distribution on the photoconductor surface. We propose an alternative method for field calculation based on various physical parameters of the development system. It uses a set of laser and photoconductor parameters to compute the exposure energy on the photoconductor surface, and the corresponding photoconductor surface potential is obtained from the Photo-Induced Discharge Characteristics (PIDC) of the photoconductor. The surface potential is then used as a boundary condition for solving Poisson's equation. The normal and horizontal fields are subsequently obtained by taking the negative gradient of the voltage. This method accounts for what is commonly known as dot-overlapping. Thus, electric fields anywhere in the gap for an arbitrary input bitmap can be calculated. Using our field model, simulation results from various input patterns are presented.

  • 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.
