One exposure, trilevel xerography provides a novel means to produce, single pass, highlight color prints. In this scheme, a ROS creates an imagewise three level, unipolar latent image in which the color information is encoded in the discharge level. The highest charge regions represent one color, and the lowest charge regions a second color. An intermediate charge level, approximately midway between the high and low charge, serves as the background reference and is not printed. The components of the composite two color latent image are developed sequentially using charged area and discharged area development and bipolar developers. Electrostatic transfer is enabled by converting the developed bipolar image to a unipolar image using a pretransfer charging step. Because of the nature of the latent image, a trilevel development system must satisfy demands substantially beyond those required in conventional xerography. This paper will discuss these requirements.
