Impact of Light Exposure on Measurements of Print Images

Observations of print sample measurements have shown that some inks are more prone to noisy measurements than other inks. After investigation it was found that these inks exhibited behavior that may be described as luminescent. More precisely, the measured density of these inks is higher when the samples are stored in the dark and lower when the samples have been exposed to light—either from recent testing or from ambient office light. For example, a sample that is tested in a Xenon light chamber then removed for measurement, will measure lower density if measured immediately after removal compared to a measurement several hours or a day later. This study identified which inks were sensitive to light exposure, the magnitude of their response to ambient light, and their recovery in the dark.

  • 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.
