Abstract

Resonance within an ink jet cavity can serve to minimize the driving amplitude of the pressure transducer. Modes of resonance can, however, lead to undamped reflections within the cavity which result in interference phenomena. These interference effects lead to an unwanted spatial variation in the disturbance amplitude at the jet nozzles and substantial variations in breakoff length between adjacent jets.
