Influence of Light Scattering in Colorant Layers on Tertiary Color Reflectance

Xerographic color prints, soon expected to be introduced into the photofinishing market, are usually designed to have a maximum density close to 2.0. This value empirically proved insufficient for photofinishing applications. Factors to be analyzed include light scattering in the pigment-based colorant layers. In this report, the intensity of scattered light was measured under a 0/45 geometry with samples consisting of a primary colorant layer on a transparent backing sandwiched between a pair of glass plates. The results indicate that the scattered component acts to suppress the maximum density of pigment-based secondary or tertiary color images, but that, by choosing an appropriate order of color superimposition, the maximum density can be brought closer to that of photographic prints. The spectral reflectance of tertiary color images is also calculated based on the scattered and reflected light of primary colors, and shows a satisfactory agreement with the measured spectra.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
