Abstract

A new method of recording for tone reproduction was developed by application of the state of ink flight peculiar to the electrostatically extracted ink-jet method. In the state of ink flight in this new method, the ink forms a liquid thread from the nozzle tip, turns into ink corpuscles from the leading edge of the liquid thread, and then scatters like mist. The state of flight from a liquid thread to corpuscles is consecutive and continuous. For expressing tonal differences, the state around the leading edge of the liquid thread was used for recording the high-density area of the image and the state of scattering corpuscles for the low-density area. This differentiation in usage was confirmed workable and favorable results obtained.
