Measuring Wicking in Ink Jet Paper

An excerpt from the paper

The image analysis (IA) techniques described in this work uses an established statistical method (Standard Deviation) coupled with a standard IA measurement procedure (Thresholding) to capture the degree of ink movement along surface and sub-surface paper fibers that occurs immediately after the wet low viscosity ink strikes the paper surface and before the ink vehicle and solvents evaporate. This post deposit ink movement is cause of visual image distortions that are often referred to as edge raggedness, feathering, and wicking
