Major concerns in the fingerprint field center around the implications of the recommendations outlined in the 2009 report by the National Research Council of the National Academies, Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States – A Path Forward. This report highlighted perceived deficiencies throughout the various forensic sciences, particularly with respect to friction ridge analysis. A broad recommendation of the NRC Report was that there was a strong need for additional research in many areas of the forensic sciences, including pattern recognition disciplines like friction ridge analysis. Reflecting the growth in research in this area, Lee and Gaensslen’s Advances in Fingerprint Technology, 3rdEditionhas been completely updated with new material and nearly double the references contained in the previous edition. Divided into two sections, the first section provides a detailed review of current, widely used development techniques, as well as some older, historical methods. The second section describes more recent advances as well as novel, emerging technologies that have just begun to reach maturity. Highlights in this edition include:Comprehensive details about work performed by the UK Home Office regarding the use of powders and brushesAdvances in the area of blood reagents, and the transition from previously carcinogenic peroxidase reagents to new and safer protein staining methodsThe vacuum metal deposition techniqueThe cyanoacrylate fuming processAn update on ninhydrin analogsEmerging trends in print development using nanotechnologyHow to handle latent print recovery and decontamination at scenes contaminated with chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive materialsA model for quantitatively interpreting and assessing minutiae in a printMethods for digital and chemical imaging of latent prints
