Fingerprint technology developed for police

Abstract:
Scientists say nanotechnology could in the future help police catch criminals by providing clearer and more detailed fingerprints. Current powders used by detectives to pick up prints work because the oil from fingers has a natural tackiness. But researchers at the University of Sunderland are developing a nanoparticle dust which actively seeks out any oil, however small the amount that is left.
