Nanotechnology In The Fight Against Crime

Whereas the current fingerprinting technique is fairly cumbersome and gives results that are not always clear and reproducible, this new method developed by a team of scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, will give clearer pictures in a shorter time. With the pseudo-science all too often depicted in the highly popular “CSI” series currently running on television all around the globe, it was about time to see a real advancement in forensic science.

Hidden fingerprints can now be revealed quickly and reliably thanks to two developments in nanotechnology.
