There are three main types of inkjet device. In the continuous inkjet printer a continuous stream of electrically charged ink drops are fired toward the surface. The desired image is created by deflecting unwanted drops into a gutter. The drop-on-demand inkjet printer fires ink only at the points of the surface necessary to create the desired image. The phase-change inkjet printer uses solid ink that is heated so that it leaves the nozzle as a liquid but returns to the solid state as it reaches the image surface; a major advantage is that it does not need special paper for good results as other inkjet devices do.
Considerable advances have been made in recent years and some inkjet printers can produce prints of photographic quality, though there are still concerns about the long-term stability of the dyes used.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
