The utilization of air entrainment for transport and control of charge deposition in ionographic printing is investigated numerically. The geometries considered can be thought of as a charge generation region followed by an air entrainment region followed by an ion projection region. The air entrainment region provides a zone in the ion flow path where moderate electrode voltages can be applied to achieve stable and accurate control and modulation of the ion current levels. Results of the numerical simulations showing effects of air flow and modulation voltage on ion trajectories are presented.
