Pixel Image Formation on a Multi-Layered Organic Film Installed with Pixel-Like Floating Electrodes
Abstract:We have proposed a novel capacitor-controlled imaging device consisting of an insulator installed with pixel-like middle floating electrodes on a metal substrate. In this device, the corona charged surface potential can be reduced to the value calculated from the capacity of an insulator above the floating electrode by connecting the floating electrode to ground potential.
In this work, by replacing the bottom insulator with organic photoreceptor (OPC), the light addressing was examined for grounding the floating electrodes through photoconduction in the OPC layer. The surface potential of the whole area just above the floating electrode was successfully controlled by light irradiation, even when the light was focused to the area smaller than the floating electrode. This result allows us to construct the digital dot image on the photoreceptor installed with the pixel-type floating electrode array in the future.

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.
