Time dependent layer-by-layer toner development in AC biased monocomponent systems is numerically simulated. For a given gap length, a uniform toner cloud is assumed to be formed in the gap prior to initial development. The normal electric field in the toner cloud is obtained by taking the two-dimensional Fourier transform of the spatial potential and subsequently taking the negative gradient of the potential. The field is then used to determine the locations of toner deposition in each toner layer, whose thickness is obtained from the average toner particle size. As the photoconductor (PC) rolls away from the developer, the effective gap length increases and the sinusoidal AC bias oscillates. The time dependent effective gap length as a function of PC rotation angle is calculated using conformal mapping techniques. Our development calculation is carried out iteratively until the developed layers from the positive and negative peaks of the AC bias stabilize. Simulation results using different input bitmaps are presented and analyzed.

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.
