Abstract

Zinc oxide paper ordinarily utilized in electrophotographic copying can be utilized for facsimile printing, by a raster swept laser beam modulated by facsimile signals. For this type of operation, the paper is fed in coordination with the laser sweep and after being exposed by the laser, the motion of the paper through the exposure station produces a raster arrangement of electrostatic charge forming the desired image.

Laser Raster Printer with Zinc Oxide Paper

Zinc oxide paper ordinarily utilized in electrophotographic copying can be utilized for facsimile printing, by a raster swept laser beam modulated by facsimile signals. For this type of operation, the paper is fed in coordination with the laser sweep and after being exposed by the laser, the motion of the paper through the exposure station produces a raster arrangement of electrostatic charge forming the desired image.

The electrostatically charged paper is fed to a conventional developing station, wherein toner particles dispersed in an insulating liquid are selectively attracted to the charged paper surface producing a visible image. The developed paper image should be fed through a drying station to evaporate the liquid acquired in the toner bath.
