Experiments were conducted with an EFM (Electrostatic Force Microscope) to measure surface potential distribution on CTL (Carrier Transport Layer) having two different charge mobility characteristics. One CTL has lower charge mobility characteristic and other CTL has higher charge mobility characteristic. Four electrodes were placed on each CTL with 100 micrometers and 200 micrometers separation respectively. We had a detector of the EFM scan over three electrodes to measure surface potential distribution on the surface of each CTL. We applied a known voltage on two electrodes and remaining electrodes were connected to ground. We consequently could observe significant surface voltage fluctuation real time basis on both CTL films. The substantial fluctuation of surface voltage distribution could explain charge migration in CTL toward horizontal direction, which is perpendicular to applied electric field. The thickness of each CTL was only 5 micrometer therefore the electric field which was perpendicular to the CTL films was supposed to be very strong and uniform.

  • 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.
