A non-magnetic single-component process is produced and reported for basic development characteristics.For example, the characteristics of development mechanism using an elastic development roller depend on the resistance of a development roller, the mechanism of the thin toner layer formation with a doctor blade, the toner sticking phenomena on the doctor blade and the ghost formation mechanism for the surface potential of the development roller with high resistance.The uniformity of development ability for half tone image is a significant subject in a contact single-component non-magnetic development system. And we found the ghost formation is explained by the difference of the toner diameter on the surface of the development roller before the development to the photoconductor.
