Xerography consists of a number of complex individual processes which in concert define the image quality of the output print. This paper describes a model which bypasses the complex individual processes and attempts to empirically model the output by use of a few key parameters, motivated by physical insight. Building on a prior modeling approach, a model is defined to empirically fit the microscopic toner mass distribution of halftone patches to measured luminosity (L*) across the Tone Reproduction Curve. The simplified model proposed here accommodates the microscopic toner mass of the patch, the Yule-Nielsen effect on paper, and certain key luminosity measurements. Comparisons are made between the simulated and experimental L* values and the optimization procedure used to fit the parameters is described.

  • 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.
