Paper Abstract

We have assessed the ability of laser-excited fluorescence to distinguish between similar inks, as might be found in document alterations. We find that the combined use of a coating procedure that strongly increases fluorescence efficiency at room temperature and fluorescence examination at 77°K provide high discriminatory capability. The procedures are easy to use and satisfy practicality requirements essential for utilization in document sections of law enforcement agencies.
