Abstract

The phenomenon of laser-induced discharging in an organic photoconductor sample was directly observed using electron holography and sophisticated techniques for in situ observations. Mechanical friction was used to induce negative tribocharges on the surface of the photoconductor sample. The observation of equipotential contour lines (i.e., the electric potential distribution) outside the specimen revealed that the amount of tribocharges was reduced by the laser exposure. Computer simulations of the equipotential lines provided useful information for evaluating the quantity of tribocharges.
