Paper Abstract

This paper will outline a simplified model for the development of toner dots on a reflective support. Using this model and the interaction of light between the reflective support and the dot's microstructure, the physical, optical and total dot-gain will be calculated, along with the resulting tone scales, for a variety of digital halftone patterns. The resulting tone reproduction curves and dot-gain will be compared with the classical literature on dot-gain and tone reproduction curves, more modern approaches and experimental data from the literature. A comparison to a well-defined experimental system will be shown.
