Abstract

Disclosed is a reversal imaging process using liquid ink development, In this process, a gravure-like roller is con-structed from a transparent substrate having a substantially uniform pattern of lands and valleys. The exterior of this substrate is coated with a transparent conductive electrode and a thin photoconductive layer is thereafter deposited upon this electrode 1ayer- This gravure-like device is bias by connection of the electrode layer to a D-C. power source, the photoconductive surface of the device contacted with a source of liquid ink and brought in contact with a receiving sheets An image is projected through the transparent substrate there-by causing photo-activation of the photoconductive layer and resulting in the selective transfer of ink to the receiving sheet, The ink is only transferred from the gravure-like device to the receiving sheet in those areas corresponding to photo-activation of the photoconductive layer of the gravure-type device,

Disclosed is a reversal imaging process using liquid ink
development, In this process, a gravure-like roller is con-
structed from a transparent substrate having a substantially
uniform pattern of lands and valleys. The exterior of this
substrate is coated with a transparent conductive electrode
and a thin photoconductive layer is thereafter deposited upon
this electrode 1ayer~ This gravure-like device is bias by
connection of the electrode layer to a D~C. power source, the
photoconductive surface of the device contacted with a source
of liquid ink and brought in contact with a receiving sheets
An image is projected through the transparent substrate there-
by causing photo-activation of the photoconductive layer and
resulting in the selective transfer of ink to the receiving
sheet, The ink is only transferred from the gravure-like
device to the receiving sheet in those areas corresponding to
photo-activation of the photoconductive layer of the gravure-
type device,
