Application note: Analysing gunshot residues with Raman microscopy (pdf)

File size: 662 kB Language: English Part number: AN253(EN)

Gunshot residues (GSR) are debris expelled from a discharged firearm. They often form a vital part of forensic examinations into firearm assaults. Raman spectroscopy is an excellent tool for studying GSR as it can analyse the chemical forms of both inorganic and organic GSR compounds, and distinguish them from other environmental residues.
