In a single-sheet multi-layer thermal imaging system images are formed due to the transformation of colorless crystalline materials to colored amorphous forms, achieved by melting or dissolution in suitable solvents. The reflection spectra of the colored forms in printed images may vary due to the presence of other components, such as thermal solvents, polymeric binders required for imaging, and can cause undesirable color combinations in printed images. Such variations may be the results of aggregation of the colored amorphous forms, or formation of different colored forms from the same colorless crystals due to a change in the mechanism of reaction. Addition of appropriate components to the imaging systems can alter the spectra of the printed images to make them suitable for improved image quality.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
