Abstract

Photoreceptors are produced by the vapor deposition of arsenic/selenium mixtures onto selected substrates. Photoreceptor yield loss due to spattering of molten arsenic/selenium can be reduced or eliminated by covering the boats (crucibles) with a fine mesh screen. The fine mesh screen should be designed to incorporate resistance heating capable of attaining a temperature slightly higher than the vaporizing temperature of the arsenic/selenium mixture,
