Selected imaging techniques applied in forensic science

  title={Selected imaging techniques applied in forensic science},
  author={A. Łasińska},
the article presents issues that include various imaging techniques used in forensics. technology development observed in the modern world, implies changes in all areas of life, improving, speeding up and opening them to new research capabilities. the use of advanced technology allows precise analysis of the evidence. the opportunity to observe different samples at high magnification is necessary in the performance of their documentation (examination of the morphology of the surface, setting… Expand

Development of micron and submicron scale carriers for drugs and nutrients delivery
Formulating multiple nutrient supplements and better dosage forms for paediatric patients are still current needs and challenges. This study aims to develop a cost-effective novel delivery systemExpand


Examination of line crossings by atomic force microscopy.
The results show for the first time that AFM images present the same qualitative information obtained by scanning electron microscope (SEM) images and, consequently, allow the determination of the line crossing sequence under ambient conditions without vacuum and conductive coating of specimens.

Evaluation of Instrumental Parameters for Automated Scanning Electron Microscopy/Gunshot Residue Particle Analysis
Computer-controlled analytical scanning electron microscope (SEM) parameters such as the minimum particle size, video threshold, digital clectron beam point spacing, video dwell time, X-ray countingExpand
Automation of Gunshot Residue Detection and Analysis by Scanning Electron Microscopy/Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (SEM/EDX)
The identification of gunshot residues (GSR) is generally accomplished by bulk analysis of complete residue samples (by atomic absorption spectroscopy or neutron activation analysis) or by residueExpand
High Resolution Imaging of Latent Fingerprints by Localized Corrosion on Brass Surfaces
Abstract:  The Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is capable of imaging fingerprint ridges on polished brass substrates at an unprecedented level of detail. While exposure to elevated humidity at ambientExpand
Morphological changes in textile fibres exposed to environmental stresses: atomic force microscopic examination.
This study confirmed that the AFM could become a very powerful tool in forensic examination of textile fibres to provide significant fibre evidence due to its capability of distinguishing between different environmental exposures or forced damages to fibres. Expand
Evaluation of Shooting Distance by AFM and FTIR/ATR Analysis of GSR
It appears promising that the development of AFM and FTIR/ATR databases for various powder manufacturers may be useful in analysis and identification of GSR. Expand
Energetic materials: crystallization, characterization and insensitive plastic bonded explosives
The product quality of energetic materials is predominantly determined by the crystallization process applied to produce these materials. It has been demonstrated in the past that the higher theExpand
