Abstract

The generation of interference fringes, when imaging a xerographic photoconductor with monochromatic light such a produced by a solid state laser, can be prevented by using a roughened or filled aluminized Mylar (E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.) substrate which does not specularly reflect light which impinges on its surface. Such substrates which can be used in xerographic processes without having interference fringes are the brand EB-11 (E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.) or the brand 329 (ICI Americas, Inc.). If these substrates are too rough, severe print quality defects can be obtained. Also, these substrates are opaque so that backlight erasure of the photoconductor is not practical.
