Control of the Dot Height of Pigmented Ink for Good Clarity
Abstract:Clarity is one of the important physical parameters to characterize the quality of a print image. The print at low clarity will be recognized lacking in glossiness. Generally the pigmented ink is inferior to the dye-based ink in clarity of printing.
The present paper studies the clarity of print of the pigmented ink both theoretically and experimentally and shows that the clarity of print at low duties is determined predominantly by the height of ink dots formed on a paper. In addition, we propose techniques to control the dot height and show possibilities to improve the clarity of the pigmented ink.

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.
