Forensic chemistry is the examination of non-biological trace evidence found at crime scenes in order to identify unknown materials and match samples to known substances. In a new research scientists from the department of chemistry at Louisiana State University (LSU) set out to apply laser technology. This laser ablation technique can capture molecules contained within a finger-mark, including lipids, proteins, genetic material which can be further analysed. Forensic chemists use a wide variety of analyzation methods, such as chromatography, spectrometry and spectroscopy.
