Abstract

Development of electrostatic latent images may be satis- factorily accomplished using liquid electrophoretic developers. These broadly comprise insulating liquid vehicles having finely divided solid marking materials dispersed and suspended therein which contact the latent image bearing surface in both the charged and uncharged areas. Under the influence of the field associated with the charged image pattern, the suspended particles migrate toward the charged portions of the imaging surface and separate out of the insulating liquid thus forming deposits in image configuration.
