Abstract

Proposed is the incorporation of nonlinear optical materials with frequency doubling properties into an organic photoreceptor (P/R) for the purpose of converting infiared (IR) scanning/write light into the visible range of the spectrum and thereby enabling a photoreceptor to function efficiently with an IR laser diode. The nonlinear materials may be incorporated, for example, into the transport, generator or blocking layers, or they may be a layer beneath the generator layer.

Proposed is the incorporation of nonlinear optical materials with frequency doubling properties into an organic photoreceptor (P/R) for the purpose of converting infiared (IR) scanning/write light into the visible range of the spectrum and thereby enabling a photoreceptor to function efficiently with an IR laser diode. The nonlinear materials may be incorporated, for example, into the transport, generator or blocking layers, or they may be a layer beneath the generator layer.

Frequency doubling materials can convert inbred light into visible light which can then be absorbed by the visible light sensitive pigments and produce a latent image. The fiequency doubling materials can be organic or inorganic. There has been extensive research in developing these types of materials, for example, non-linear optic materials. The proposed device and modification of P/R properties can obviate the need of using infrared sensitive pigments but still fulfill the requirements of using to use IR laser diodes for imaging.
