Abstract

The concept of dipole development in which uncharged toner particles are attracted to an electrostatic image by virtue of its fringe field gradients has been described in U.S. One technique for carrying out this development is to manually flood the image with toner and vacuum off the background. Still another technique is to use magnetic toner and a rotating magnetic which moves the toner from a sump through and out of the development zone.
