Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $258,816)

The proposed research project will provide fundamental information that will enable the straightforward improvement of the cyanoacrylate, (superglue) fuming method of developing latent fingermarks by optimizing the acquisition of developed latent fingermarks and enhancing the quality of aged fingermarks. An extension of previously NIJ funded research focusing on the effects of humidity on cyanoacrylate fuming, this project will focus on the effects of temperature .
