Paper Abstract

Lasers find application in numerous areas of criminalistics such as fiber analysis document examination and serology. Their widest use however is in detection of latent finger prints. Several routine procedures for obtaining laserexcited fingerprint fluorescence on a range of surfaces have been devel oped. However many surfaces fluoresce so strongly themselves that they are not amenable to these procedures. Timeresolved luminescence imaging is being investigated to permit detection of fingerprints on such surfaces.
