High resolution latent image formation is an important step in electrophotography to achieve high quality prints. Presently, analytical models exist for the other important steps: photoconductor charging, development (both single and dual component), and transfer. We present here an analytical model of charge image generation on the surface of an organic photoconductor due to laser exposure. The inputs to the model include laser intensity profile as a function of time, quantum efficiency of the charge generation layer, hole mobility of the charge transport layer, and initial charge density on the surface of the PC. The output of the model is the PC surface charge map as it evolves in time, which is a key input to the toner development process in electrophotography.

  • 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.
