Abstract

A corrugated, conformable photoreceptor may be manufactured by extruding a conductive material to form a support having a corrugated surface pattern of parallel lands and valleys, and then completely coating the surface pattern with a photocon-ductive material,. This kind of photoreceptor is useful in certain techniques for the liquid development of electrostatic latent images, in which the liquid is held in the valleys of the corrugated photoreceptor, and the latent image is formed by electrical charging and imagewise exposure. It may be desirable to have the valleys electrically conductive, in which case either a conductive material is laid down in the valleys, or the photoconductive material is cut through in the valleys to expose the conductive support.
