Proposed is the incorporation of nonlinear optical materials with frequency doubling properties into an organic photoreceptor (P/R) for the purpose of converting infiared (IR) scanning/write light into the visible range of the spectrum and thereby enabling a photoreceptor to function efficiently with an IR laser diode. The nonlinear materials may be incorporated, for example, into the transport, generator or blocking layers, or they may be a layer beneath the generator layer.
