Abstract

A photoconductive surface is used as a toner donor to develop imagewise charge patterns on an imaging surface. The photo-conductive toner donor is typically an endless belt or a drum. The donor surface is uniformly charged and uniformly developed with conductive magnetic toner. The developed donor surface is brought into contact with (or close proximity to) an imaging surface on which a charge pattern has been estab-lished. The area of contact or close proximity is referred to as a development station.

A photoconductive surface is used as a toner donor to develop
imagewise charge patterns on an imaging surface. The photo-
conductive toner donor is typically an endless belt or a drum.

The donor surface is uniformly charged and uniformly developed
with conductive magnetic toner. The developed donor surface
is brought into contact with (or close proximity to) an
imaging surface on which a charge pattern has been estab-
lished. The area of contact or close proximity is referred to
as a development station.

In the development station, the charge on the toner donor is
substantially completely relaxed typically by flood exposure.
Toner is attracted from the donor to the charge pattern on the
imaging surface.
