Chester Floyd Carlson, a physicist, born in Seattle, USA invented the process of instant copying which he called electrophotography. It later came to be known as xerography.
Carlson, who worked at the patent office in New York found the job of taking copies of documents very exhausting.
This prompted him to find a solution and experiment with photoconductivity and electro-photography.
It took Carlson ten years to convince a company to accept his invention. He was rejected by companies like GE, IBM, Kodak and RCA.
In 1947 he finally sold the commercial rights to his invention to the now famous Xerox Corp. Eleven years later, Xerox introduced its first office copier.
