A general theory describing light propagation in turbid media is presented, taking into account the effect of scattering on the path length of light propagation. This leads to new relationships between the K-M scattering (S) and absorbing (K) coefficients and the intrinsic scattering (s) and absorbing (a) coefficients of material. It is shown that experimental findings of dyed paper, typical examples that the original K-M theory failed to explain can clearly be understood and accommodated by the theory.

  • 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.
