Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $237,977)
This goal of this project is to develop methods of analysis for paint pigments using Raman spectroscopy. Raman spectroscopy, which is becoming more widely available in forensic science laboratories, is the first analytical technique to provide the spatial resolution, sensitivity and specificity necessary to identify pigments in situ while still in the paint film or other binder. The results of this research project would advance the analysis of paint, ink, and fiber evidence.
