RESEARCH INTERESTS IN THE AREA OF XEROGRAPHY AND LASER PRINTER MATERIALS

Xerography: This is the study of photocopier and laser printer technology. In particular our group is investigating the chemical and physical processes that are responsible for losses in print quality. State of the art analytical methods are being used to identify the cause of the problem. This information is used to recommend new materials that do not exhibit these problems or demonstrate improved performance. The work includes studies of the failure mechanisms in multilayered photoconducting polymer films (electrophotography), polymer toner materials, and polymer coated carrier beads.
