Disclosed is a method and apparatus for continuous electro~
phoretic development of an electrostatic latent image, The
device illustrated above is representative of means for
achievement of the stated objectives of this disclosure,

Accordingly, a photoconductive insulating web 2 is imaged in
the conventional manner and thereafter advanced into a
development zone 4 as shown above. Coincidentally with the
advancement of the latent image bearing member into the
development zone a second web 6 is similarly advanced
through this same zone, A fluid medium 8 is provided
therebetween so as to cause softening of this second web
and thereby permit pigment particles 10 contained in this
second web to selectively migrate to the photoconductive
web in response to the electrical forces exerted by the
latent image on the photoconductive web, This migration
of particles to the photoconductive layer results in
development of the latent image,
