Abstract

Most xerographic copiers and printers use a developer mixture consisting of toner powder and carrier beads. These components are triboelectrically responsive to each other, and this mutual charge relationship is fundamental to the process of developing an image on a photoconductor. Such a toned image can then be transferred to output sheets.
