Abstract
Thermal Ink Jet (TIJ) depends on stable, consistent nucleation to create drops of uniform mass. The shape of the nucleating pulse is a contributing factor to the size and stability of the ejected drop. The size of the ejected drop can also be increased by the presence of a warming pulse immediately preceding the nucleating pulse. This paper summarizes the results of experiments designed to investigate these two phenomena.
