Caption: Latent finger print identification. Forensic scientist examining a fired bullet casing (gold) using a new technique that allows fingerprints to be visualised on metal surfaces, even after the print itself has been removed. Fingerprints leave a slight corrosion on metal surfaces. When a current is passed through the metal, which has been coated in a fine conducting powder, the corroded area attracts the powder to it, showing up a residual print. The technique is being used to re-open cold cases and may even work to find fingerprints on bombs. Photographed at the University of Leicester, England, UK.
