Abstract

A system is described which utilizes localized spots produced with persistent internal polarization in a layered organic photoconductor with aluminum electrodes. The spots can be produced by a focused helium neon laser beam, can be quite small in size, can be erased by blue light, and are useful for printing and memory applications.
