Abstract

A linear array of individually controlled light-emitting diodes with fiber optics for collection and imaging, is mechanically scanned along the axial direction of a photocathode drum of an electrophotographic copier in order to write an image (alphanumeric characters) on the drum, the image then being printed on paper using the electrophotographic process of the copier.
