Detection of Writing and Fingerprints on Burnt Documents Using the Video Spectral Comparator

  title={Detection of Writing and Fingerprints on Burnt Documents Using the Video Spectral Comparator},
  author={Andrew Ethier and Pardeep K. Jasra},
Both writing and latent fingerprints on burnt papers were visualized with the help of different light sources available in the Video Spectral Comparator. The extent to which these were visible was found to be dependent on the pen type, and it was found that each pen type could be visualized using this machine.
