Abstract

Attempts have been made to adapt commercial nebulizers for use in electrochromic printing; however they have serious shortcomings. Commercial nebulizers are too bulky, and they require considerable power because they do not affect a thin layer of solution but rather the bulk of the liquid to be nebulized. Besides, they would require a carrier gas to lead the mist over the paper. Finally, they have a rather low wetting capacity and are expensive.
