Abstract

A two-step development method is proposed to develop the latent electrostatic image in the xerographic imaging process. The image is first developed with a two-component developer (toner and carrier) which is depleted of extremely small-sized toner particles or "finesrl. The partially developed image is then brought into a cloud of fine developer to complete the development of the image.
