Exponential decay, bi-exponential decay, and related decay processes are common in the physical world. Stretched exponential time dependence of the form e−(kt)c has been observed in connection with the discharge of electrophotographic photoconductors, luminescence in porous silicon, dielectric relaxation in glassy and polymeric materials, as well as in other systems. Exponential decay, the stretched exponential, the Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts function KWW, and the Buettner function satisfy a differential equation that depends on the exponent c and the entropy of the system. The form of the decay function determined by the exponent c can be shown to be consistent with cooperative events occurring during relaxation and can be related to the chemical potential of the system. This indicates that probabilistic, cooperative events may play a role in the dynamics of stretched exponential decay processes in addition to distributions of relaxation times and relaxation paths.

  • 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.
