Abstract

A novel electrophotographic imaging member comprising a brush grained aluminum substrate, a layer of amorphous selenium and a charge carrier transport layer. The substrate has a roughened surface with asperities of from about 1 to about 5 microns. The selenium layer is deposited on the substrate by arranging the latter as the cathode in an electrodeposition cell filled with aqueous selenious acid electrolyte and passing a constant current supplied by a D.C. energy source
