ELECTRICAL CONTACT FOR PHOTO- RECEPTORS HAVING INSULATING SUBSTRATES

Paul C. Swanton

Photoreceptors for use in electrophotographic copying devices are frequently formed on insulating substrates, and in such cases, establishing an electrical contact to the conductive layer beneath the photoconductive surface presents a practical problem. Such an electrical connection is required in order to establish ground potential, particularly when electrostatically charging the photosensitive layer, when developing it, and when transferring a developed image from it.

This disclosure relates to a solution of this problem. It involves the application of a film of carbon-filled DuPont 49000 (a product of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.) or Flexclad resin (a registered trademark of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.) to the edges of the conductive layer which extend beyond the limits of the photoconduct...
