Predicting the inkjet printing performance of particle-containing inks


   Department of Mechanical Engineering


About the Project

There has been a lot of research performed into predicting of the jetting performance of inks for inkjet printing. However, to date, the ‘inks’ used have been simple solvents. Only Nallan et al (Langmuir 2014, 30, 44, 13470–13477) expanded their investigation to include some work involving nanoparticle-containing inks. This PhD is aimed at deriving a printability prediction model for nanoparticle-containing inks, since this type of ink is most likely to be used in industry. The purpose of the research is to derive, experimentally and computationally, an expression that will enable inkjet researchers to predict the jetting behaviour of novel inks.
