1. Ion trap mobility spectrometry nuisance alarm threshold analysis for illicit narcotics based on environmental background and a ROC-curve approach
Topic: Forensics
Published: 5/18/2016
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Marcela Najarro Najarro
Abstract: The discriminative potential of an ion trap mobility spectrometer (ITMS) for trace detection of illicit narcotics relative to environmental background was investigated with a receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve framework. The ITMS response o ...

2. Field portable low temperature porous layer open tubular cryoadsorption headspace sampling and analysis part I: Instrumentation
Topic: Forensics
Published: 12/8/2015
Author: Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Building on the successful application in the laboratory of PLOT-cryoadsorption as a means of sampling vapor samples, in this paper a field portable apparatus is introduced. This device fits inside of an aluminum tool carrier, and can be easily tran ...

3. Thermal Signature Measurements for Ammonium Nitrate/Fuel Mixtures by Laser Heating
Topic: Forensics
Published: 11/1/2015
Author: Cary Presser
Abstract: Measurements were carried out to obtain thermal signatures of several ammonium nitrate/fuel (ANF) mixtures, using a laser-heating technique referred to as the laser-driven thermal reactor (LDTR). The mixtures were ammonium nitrate (AN)/kerosene, AN/ ...

4. Strategies for Potential Age Dating of Fingerprints through the Diffusion of Sebum Molecules on a Non-porous Surface
Topic: Forensics
Published: 7/17/2015
Authors: Shinichiro Muramoto, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Age dating of fingerprints can have a significant impact in forensic science, as it has the potential to facilitate the judicial process by assessing the relevance of a fingerprint found in a crime scene. However, no reliable method currently exists ...

5. A Novel Test Sample for the Quantification of Illicit Drugs in Fingerprints using Imaging Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Forensics
Published: 4/27/2015
Authors: Shinichiro Muramoto, Thomas P Forbes, Arian C. van Asten, John G Gillen
Abstract: A novel standard for the forensic analysis of fingerprints was introduced and characterized using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (DESI-MS), aimed at the trace level d ...

6. Mass Spectrometry Detection and Imaging of Organic and Inorganic Explosive Device Signatures using Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization
Topic: Forensics
Published: 6/26/2014
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: We demonstrate the coupling of desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI) with in-source collision induced dissociation (CID) for the mass spectrometric (MS) detection and imaging of explosive device components, including both organic, e.g., ...

7. Chemical Imaging of Artificial Fingerprints by Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Forensics
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI) mass spectrometry was used to image chemical distributions of endogenous, e.g., fatty acids, and trace exogenous compounds, e.g., explosives, narcotics and lotions, in deposited and lifted artificia ...

8. A global analysis of Y-chromosomal haplotype diversity for 23 STR loci
Topic: Forensics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Michael D Coble, Carolyn R Steffen
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=916144

9. Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization of Explosives and Narcotics for Ambient Pressure Mass
Topic: Forensics
Published: 8/6/2013
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Timothy M Brewer, John G Gillen
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI), a desorption-based ambient ion source, was developed and evaluated as a possible source for field deployable ambient pressure mass spectrometry (APMS). DEFFI, based on an electro-flow focusing syst ...
