Applications of Vibrational Spectroscopy in Forensic Science II

This symposium will feature applications of vibrational spectroscopy that will include Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) and Raman spectroscopy. Presentations will cover analysis of fibers, counterfeit banknotes, museum objects, history of IR microscopes in forensic science, and several contributed talks on various additional applications. The attendee will hear from some of the experts in the field of vibrational spectroscopy as it applies to solving problems in forensic science. Please join us for an exciting day of interesting talks and lively discussions.
