A high resolution ion print head architecture which utilizes micro-dielectric barrier discharges (mDBD's) has been developed for charging of surfaces in electrophotographic (EP) printing. The mDBDs consist of arrays of micro-plasma devices (10-100 μm diameter) fabricated using MEMS techniques. A radio frequency (rf) voltage waveform biases an electrode which is buried in a dielectric substrate. A third biasing electrode separated by hundreds of microns from the dielectric surface is used to extract electron charges. To aid in the development and improve the performance of ion-head charging systems, a first principles, multi-dimensional computer modeling investigation has been conducted. The dynamics of the plasma and charging of the top surface as a function of rf frequency, voltage waveform and material properties will be discussed, with comparison of our results to experiments.

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.
