Exposing Cycolor Film using Telegen's New Linear Head
Abstract:A new linear head is being developed, using Telegen Display Corporation's HGED technology, to expose Cycolor instant photographic media in a compact digital printer. Some of the design criteria used in the development of the new head to optimize the quality of the final picture are reviewed in this paper. The spectral characteristics of the red, green and blue phosphor emissions need to be matched to the spectral absorption characteristics of the corresponding photo-initiators employed in the microcapsules of the Cycolor photographic media to minimize exposure cross-talk. The intensity of the phosphor emissions also needs to be high to obtain the required print speed of 20 seconds. The selection of each of the phosphors needs to take both of these criteria into account. Specific details in the selection of the red phosphor system are provided.

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.
