Spontaneous pattern formation is ubiquitous in printing technology. It leads to surface inhomogeneity of the printed samples which e.g. causes severe issues in printed electronics.
Brumm focuses on the effect of printing velocity, ink viscosity, ink surface tension and printing form elasticity on spontaneous pattern formation. Together with co-workers she demonstrated how a flatbed scanner can be employed for this task.
