A new photoreceptor charging method without corona discharge is proposed in this paper. The charging is carried out by rubbing a photoreceptor with magnetic conductive particles having applied potential. Using this method, the photoreceptor is charged to more than 80% of its applied potential. The surface potential is found to be high and stable when the conductivity of particles and the peripheral velocity of the sleeve carrying the conductive particles are high. The charging mechanisms are assumed to be carrier‐injection assisted by the rubbing, and injection‐carrier trapping.
