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 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.
