The dynamics of thermoplastic-photoconductor films is reviewed. A theory of thermoplastic film deformation is presented for a three-layer structure in air with modified boundary conditions. The amplitude of the deformation A versus the spatial frequency k is of bandpass type (A - k curve). The influence of the thickness of the layers and the heating and electric parameters on the A - k curve are analyzed. The predictions of the model are compared to others previously reported and with experimental data. The validity and limitations of the model are also discussed.
