One of the major drawbacks with an ionographic printing system is the latent image defects that are caused by charge spreading or blooming, on the electroreceptor. It has been shown that the image blooming can be significantly reduced by reducing the image potential of the electrostatic image on the receiver or electroreceptor. When this is done, however, it becomes dificult or impossible to develop the electrostatic image sufficiently with standard two component development systems.
