New fluorescent fingerprint tag aims to increase IDs from ‘hidden’ fingerprints on bullets and knives 
Neutron scattering at ILL and ISIS delves inside new crime scene forensics technique developed by the University of Leicester; Research to address the fact that only 10% of fingerprints taken from crime scenes yield identifications that are usable in court. 
A new way of detecting and visualizing fingerprints from crime scenes using colour-changing fluorescent films could lead to higher confidence identifications from latent (hidden) fingerprints on knives, guns, bullet casings and other metal surfaces. The technique is the result of a collaboration between the University of Leicester, the Institut Laue-Langevin and the STFC’s ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source, and will be presented today at the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Faraday Discussion in Durham.
