Carbon dot based nanopowders and their application for fingerprint recovery

Author affiliations

Abstract

The incorporation of a minor amount of carbogenic nanoparticles into powder compositions imparts remarkable colour-tuneability, without compromising the flowability. In a proof-of-concept demonstration we report the use of these hybrid nanopowders for the visual enhancement of latent fingerprints where they effectively resolve issues arising from poor contrast against multi-coloured or patterned backgrounds.
