Abstract

An ink jet printing technique in which the problem of nozzle blocking at high resolution is avoided by using a clear (i.e., nonpigmented) liquid jet system as the first stage of a two-stage marking process. The second stage of the process is one where the selectively written, clear liquid is rendered visible by another process sensitive to the presence or absence of clear liquid. The clear liquid latent image must be capable of altering the properties of the paper such that development occurs. For example, the clear liquid can be used to alter the electrical or surface adhesion properties of the paper.
