Forensic Ink Analysis
Non-destructive instrumental analysis utilising techniques of microscopy, infrared luminescence and infrared reflectance to differentiate between different inks. These techniques can identify amendments/additions made to an original entry on a document, decipher obliterated writings, show whether the same ink has been used for different entries etc
Forensic ink examinations are undertaken utilising the non-destructive techniques of microscopy, infrared luminescence and infrared reflectance. These methods are used to differentiate between different inks, to decipher obliterated writings where the obliterating ink is of a different composition from the original entry, to identify alterations to writings made with a different ink from the original entry etc.
