    1. Separation of Overlapping Fingerprints in Multilayered Carrier Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Separation of Overlapping Fingerprints in Multilayered Carrier Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Fingerprints lifted from crime scenes are often overlapped because of multiple impressions of fingers. Current methods to separate overlapping fingerprints are primarily based on algorithms that estimate the orientation field of component prints. However, these methods need human intervention, and the accuracy of the separation may easily be degraded. In this paper, a novel tomographic imaging technique, optical coherence tomography (OCT), was used to separate overlapping fingerprints intuitively and noninvasively. The OCT system was also applied to reveal a hidden blood fingerprint that was completely covered by one layer of nontransparent paint. An additional experiment was conducted using a piece ...

    2. Detection of Latent Fingerprint Hidden Beneath Adhesive Tape by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Detection of Latent Fingerprint Hidden Beneath Adhesive Tape by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Adhesive tape is one type of common item which can be encountered in criminal cases involving rape, murder, kidnapping and explosives. It is often the case that a suspect deposits latent fingerprints on the sticky side of adhesive tape material when tying up victims, manufacturing improvised explosive devices or packaging illegal goods. However, the adhesive tapes found at crime scenes are usually stuck together or attached to a certain substrate, and thus the latent fingerprints may be hidden beneath the tapes. Current methods to detect latent fingerprint hidden beneath adhesive tape need to peel it off first and then apply ...

    3. Characterization of Automotive Paint by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Characterization of Automotive Paint by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Automotive paint is a common trace evidence that plays a significant role in many vehicle-related criminal cases. However, the conventional methods of obtaining tomographic images tend to damage the samples. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel method to obtain high-resolution, and cross-sectional images of the automotive paints in a non-destructive, and high-speed manner. In this study, OCT was applied to image and analyze the automotive paint, using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) as reference. Eight automotive paint samples of different brands were examined. The images of multi-layer structures provided by OCT system with 5 μm depth resolution were consistent with ...
