- The purpose of this basic-science research project was to expand on successfully completed proof-of-concept experiments by, first, determining the scientific basis of and the application of columnar thin films (CTFs) to capture friction ridge, detail found in latent fingerprints on nonporous forensically relevant textured substrates and then to compare CTF development of fingerprints with commonly employed fingerprint development techniques used for that purpose.
