Patent Number: 6,167,210

Title: Method and apparatus for optimizing a charge image on a photoconductor of a copier or printer

Abstract: A printer or copier has a photoconductor on which charge patterns are formed that are in turn inked and printed onto a recording medium. An optimized exposure energy is determined for a given potential of the photoconductor by calculating a sensitivity factor. The optimized charge potential may also be calculated on the basis of the sensitivity factor for a given exposure energy.
