Abstract

In the electrophotographic process utilizing discharged area development, control of defects is important for image quality. These defects can be minimized by the use of barrier layers containing organic photoconductive pigments dispersed in organic binders. The use of organic pigments allows a wider latitude in the formulation of barrier layers.
