Research Aims to Assist Forensic Investigations

Posted by: on Nov 18, 2014 | No Comments

A chemistry professor Barry K. Lavine at Ohio State University was awarded a grant to continue his research of automobile paint samples to benefit forensic scientists. The grant has the potential to speed up the paint sample process using infrared spectral data. The $443,000 grant from the National Institute of Justice is Lavine’s third grant in four years. Since 2010, his research has collected more than $1.2 million in funding. He plans to do this by comparing the spectral paint to the paint of the automobile using algorithms.
