34. Markup Instructions for Extended Friction Ridge Features
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1151
Topic: Forensics
Published: 2/5/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, Peter Komarinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner
Abstract: This document provides instructions for latent print examiners in marking friction ridge features to maximize consistency among examiners. This document builds upon the Extended Feature Set (EFS) defined in American National Standards Institute/N ...

35. 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., ...

36. Prediction and Preliminary Standardization of Fire Debris Constituents with the Advance Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/12/2011
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber, Tara M Lovestead
Abstract: As pointed out by the recent National Academy of Sciences report on forensic sciences, the study of fire patterns and debris in arson fires is in need of additional study and standardization. Part of the current difficulty is in determining the appr ...

37. Radio-microanalytical particle measurements method and application to Fukushima aerosols collected in Japan
Topic: Forensics
Published: 8/26/2012
Authors: Cynthia J Zeissler, Lawrence Forsley, Richard Mark Lindstrom, Sean Newsome, Adrean Kirk, P.A. Mosier-Boss
Abstract: A nondestructive analytical method based on autoradiography and gamma spectrometry was developed to perform activity distribution analysis for particulate samples. This was applied to aerosols collected in Fukushima Japan, 40 km north of the Daiich ...

38. Reliability of Ion Mobility Spectrometry for Qualitative Analysis of Complex, Multicomponent Illicit Drug Samples
Topic: Forensics
Published: 3/20/2011
Authors: Jennifer R Verkouteren, Jessica L Staymates
Abstract: Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) has been used for trace analysis of illicit drugs, but it can also provide reliable qualitative analysis of bulk forensic drug items, despite the complexity of these samples. The drug/drug and drug/excipient combinati ...
