Abstract

In a xerographic reproducing apparatus, a photoconductor surface is uniformly charged by a charging mechanisrn and is then exposed to a document to be reproduced. The exposure dissipates the charge in the exposed area thereby forming a latent electrostatic image of the document. Residual charge remaining on the photoconductive surface must then be erased, usually by exposure to a relatively bright light source.
