Abstract

In magnetic imaging, a latent magnetic image in the form of a pattern of closely spaced magnetic poles is permanently recorded in a layer of magnetic materiaL The latent image is made visible by pouring magnetic toner over the magnetic pattern. The toner adheres to the surface of the magnetic layer in the region of the magnetic pattern and does not adhere to the background areas that are not magnetized.
