Abstract

Photoconductors or photoreceptors for electrophotographic imaging processes frequently comprise an aluminum substrate onto which is coated a photoconductive material, such as selenium, an alloy of selenium with tellurium and/or arsenic, an organic photoconductive material, or the like. The aluminum substrate generally must have a smooth, uniform surface to avoid defects in the photoreceptor formed when the substrate is coated with
