We have applied time-resolved absorption spectroscopy to the study on the photocarrier generation process in layered organic photoreceptors. The photoreceptors are comprised of azo-pigments as charge generation materials (CGMs) and charge transport materials (CTMs). Two or three distinct transient absorptions ranging from visible to mid-infrared wavelength region (600 – 2500 nm) were observed after photoexcitation in these photoreceptors. We ascribed all these transients to the cationic species of CTMs from the results of the measurements in various conditions. The transient absorption spectrum showed remarkable dependence on the CTM concentration. From this observation, we concluded that the cationic species of CTMs were monomer, dimer and larger aggregate cations. The latter two cationic species are regarded as the holes delocalized within some CTM molecules. The role of delocalized holes in photocarrier generation is discussed from the decay dynamics.

  • 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.
