Title: Experimental study of colorant scattering properties when printed on transparent media
Author: Calabria, Anthony
Abstract: It is extremely beneficial to predict the behavior of a printing device. There has been much research done developing printer prediction and simulation models dealing with printing on a paper substrate. This research is a study of the behavior of inks when printed on a transparent substrate. It is an effort to determine the possibility of using ink scattering and transmissive properties to predict the reflectance of the image, and thus help lead to a better understanding of the printing process. The approach taken utilizes the transmittance of the ink and the substrate, and an Expanded Murray-Davies Model of Tone Reproduction to predict the reflectance when the transparency is placed in contact with paper. Preliminary results have shown scattering of light does play a role in the relationship between transmittance and reflectance.
