Abstract

Photoreceptors for use in electrophotographic copying devices are frequently formed on insulating substrates, and in such cases, establishing an electrical contact to the conductive layer beneath the photoconductive surface presents a practical problem. Such an electrical connection is required in order to establish ground potential, particularly when electrostatically charging the photosensitive layer, when developing it, and when transferring a developed image from it.
