Electric Field and Force on Toners in Electrophotography
Charged particles are involved in many applications such as electrophotography, electrostatic painting, and electrostatic precipitators. Electrophotography was invented in 1938 as a copying technology by C.F. Carlson who named it xerography. Its commercialization began with the Xerox 914 copying machine by the Xerox Corporation (the Haloid Company at that time) about a half century ago. A historical review of the development and success of the corresponding industry is beyond the scope of this book.
