Marcela Diaz and Karen Rosales 1. Who invented it? Chester Carlson.

Carlson saw the need to make copies of documents in a simple and fast so I began experimenting with electrostatic charges and photoconductive materials, or mate rials that change their electrical properties when exposed to light.

On October 22, 1938 their efforts paid off and the physical, of humble origin, w ith 32 years at the time, became the discoverer of the "most successful product of all time marketed in the United States of America." The Haloid Company acquired the rights to this invention in 1947 and 14 years la ter changed its name to Xerox Corporation. 2. First copy The first was the Xerox 914 copier, which was black and white prints on plain pa per. His appearance on the market was in 1959. 3. "Xerography? Xerography is the basis of current technology photocopiers, laser printers and d igital production printers. It is a printing process that uses electrostatic dry copying documents and images. xeros = dry. graph = writing. Let us now how it i s carried out = D ...

STEPS? 1.Containing a metal cylinder that is coated with photoconductive material (cond ucts electricity when light electrostatic influences.) This material is usually a special polymer called polivinilcarbazol. Although also used silicon powder. STEPS? 2. The surface of the cylinder is charged electrostatically to rotate it against a high voltage sensitizer (cylinder makes even more sensitive to light). STEPS? 3. Place the sheet of paper you want photocopied on a glass plate and lit so tha t the image is projected on the paper through a system of lenses and mirrors on the cylinder. STEPS? 5. Sprinkle the toner, which has a negative charge on the drum and the sticks wh ere no charge. This gives the drum an exact copy of what was in the paper. STEPS?

6. He spends a blank sheet on the surface of the cylinder, a charge under the pa per attracts the toner to the east. STEPS? 7. Paper moves to stick hot rollers and toner obtained an exact copy of the imag e that was in the paper. Thus ends the process.
