Caption: Ultraviolet light detection of a handprint on a glass surface. The handprint has been sprayed with magnetic powder to make the pattern more visible. Biological materials often fluoresce (glow) under ultraviolet (UV) light, making them more visible. Handprints, just like fingerprints, are unique to an individual, and can be used to identify suspects to a crime.
