Abstract

During the recording on metallized paper with a relatively moving bank of electrodes, varying numbers of electrodes may be energized simultaneously to form respective dots. Without compensation, variation occurs in the size of the eroded dots due to variation of the voltage drop across the paper which depends upon the number of electrodes activated.
