Surface Modification of an Organic Photoconductor in an Electrophotographic Charging Environment
Abstract:Prolonged exposure of a commercial organic photoconductor in the plasma environment corresponding to an industrial electrophotographic process caused formation of a parasitic surface layer with the properties different from the original photoconductor. The parasitic film consists of a heavily oxidized surface and oxygen-free subsurface layer with the chemical composition similar to the original photoconductor but a significantly different bonding arrangement. Formation of these two regions has been correlated with damage induced by the energetic radicals and the UV photons originating from the electrophotographic plasma discharge. In-depth understanding of the formation and the properties of this parasitic layer could provide effective means to overcome its detrimental impact on the printing cost and quality.

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.
