Dynamic Electrical Conductance Profiles of Liquid Electrophotographic Inks and Corona Devices
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.1998.14.1.art00057_1  Published OnlineJanuary 1998

Spatial, cross-sectional, electrical conductance profiles of the ink (toner) “nip” and charging corona “nips” are measured as a function of position and electric field for purposes of programming into a dynamic analog electronic circuit model of an emerging, high quality liquid electrophotographic process. The circuit model itself, and its performance, are presented in a separate paper. The space charge states for various experimental liquid inks will be discussed, along with the particular transport parameters. Detailed calculated transient current flow, photoreceptor surface voltage rise, and resulting image deposition for a tiny unit area of photoreceptor traversing the development nip (within the development nip itself), will be discussed for various experimental process situations.Experimental, field dependent, spatial conductance profiles for the involved corona charging devices will include scorotrons and corotrons, specially designed for the process.
