Imaging and printing systems have to sense and control physical substances such as liquids or particulates, react to forces caused by gravity or acceleration, and manipulate the intensity, spectral content, and coherency of light. The devices that do this range in size between a few micrometers and 100 nanometers. Inside Kodak Research, much work is focused on complex arrays of devices, drawing on micro and nano fabrication technologies, on colloidal science, and on a new generation of analytical tools. With these tools, researchers can manipulate nanostructures and observe novel phenomena. The nano and micro-scale devices that Kodak works on tend to be complex arrays of devices that integrate electronic logic with fluidic, photonic, mechanical, and magnetic functionalities.
