Xerography is a dry photocopying technique.[1] Originally called electrophotography, it was renamed xerography—from the Greek: [n] roots ξηρός xeros, meaning "dry" and -γραφία -graphia, meaning "writing"—to emphasize that unlike reproduction techniques then in use such as cyanotype, the process of xerography used no liquid chemicals.[2]
