Short description of project
The main objective of the action is to develop and improve methods for analysis of printing paper surfaces in order to improve print quality. Further, it is of interest to develop methods that can measure ink distribution on printed surfaces and correlate this to the local topography and chemistry. 
Short description of the task performed by Croatian partner
During the Project Plenary Sessions five presentations were given by Croatian participants: Damir Modric in Grenoble: The influence of paper surface structure on optical dot gain; Vesna Dzimbeg Malcic in Brasov: Control of print quality through Yule-Nielsen parameter and optical properties of papers; Branka Lozo in Helsinki: Surface characteristics of handsheets made from digital printed deinked pulp; Branka Lozo in Budapest: SEM Analysis of Ink Jet Prints; Branka Lozo in Grenoble: Spectroscopic and microscopic methods in the analysis of ink jet prints. The Short-Term Scientific Mission was granted to Branka Lozo in August/September 2005 at PFI Norway: Surface and Cross Section SEM Analysis of Ink Jet Prints.
