Abstract

An imaging member comprises a softenable layer in contact with a conductive substrate, the softenabie layer containing a layer of photosensitive particles. The member is used to accomplish migration imaging. The layer of photosensitive particles is normally at or near one side of the softenable layer. An electrostatic latent image is established in the photosensitive particles by uniformly charging one surface of the softenable layer and exposing the photosensitive particles in the layer to imagewise actinic radiation. Upon softening of the layer the photosensitive particles migrate toward the conductive substrate. The non-light-struck photosensitive particles remain in place in the softened layer and a visible image is formed,
