Abstract
Roughness of a variety of commercial 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 roughness and paper or print gloss
were studied. From all three roughness-testing methods
used, the best correlation was found for AFM. Topography
of ink film was also studied by AFM.
Introduction
The worldwide importance of electronic print processes is
constantly increasing. The growth of multi color ink-jet
technology is especially growing for the home and office
markets 1
