In electrophotographic applications such as xerography, a charge retentive surface is electrostatically charged and exposed to a light pattern of an original image to be reproduced to selectively discharge the surface in accordance therewith. The resulting electrostatic latent image is developed by contacting it with toner. Thus, a toner image is produced and may then be transferred to a substrate (e.g., paper), and the image may then be affixed thereto. Subsequent to development, excess toner left on the charge retentive surface is cleaned from the surface. In a slightly different arrangement, toner may be transferred to an intermediate surface, prior to retransfer to a final substrate.
