The Effect of Ink Jet Paper Roughness on Print Gloss
  DOI :  10.2352/J.ImagingSci.Technol.2005.49.6.art00016  Published OnlineNovember 2005

Roughness of a variety of commercial Epson and Kodak ink jet papers was tested by Parker Print Surf (PPS), EMVECO stylus profilometer and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). The papers were printed on three Epson ink jet printers. Correlations between paper roughness and paper and print gloss were studied. From all three roughness testing methods used, the best correlation was found for AFM. Pigment based and dye based inks were found to have different effects on print gloss of Epson and Kodak papers. Topography of ink film was also studied by atomic force microscopy.
