The chemical properties of ink, substrate and the interface between them influence the printing process and the achievable print quality. Several methods to characterize these properties have been developed and used in recent years. The usage of vibrational spectroscopy methods is opening a new way to characterize printouts at the molecular level. The Raman spectroscopy, mainly working with visible light and a low level of sample preparation, has a high potential in this field.

In the present work, the use of micro-Raman spectroscopy and synchrotron radiation-based infrared (SR-FTIR) spectromicroscopy offers a powerful, non-destructive method for the study and the identification of inks on paper and the comparison of them to one another without the need for chemical preparation and related laboratory work.

Using the proper measurement parameters, the 3-D distribution of ink in paper was studied and related to the spreading and penetration of single inkjet droplets. This research was undertaken at the IR beamline at the Australian Synchrotron, Victoria Australia.

  • 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.
