A Simplified Guide for Forensic Analysis of Paper as Evidence
Paper is a versatile material with many uses such as writing, printing, packaging, painting, cleaning etc. Physical evidence from paper based material have great forensic value and forensic analysis of their physical properties, optical properties, electrical properties, strength properties and microscopic structure of fiber reflect the intrinsic chemistry, morphology and structure of individual fiber which assist the investigator to detect the document fraud, link particular suspect material with original document and other samples of the paper associated with the crime. The goal of this research is to examine the properties of paper by nondestructive and destructive technique under forensically sound condition.
