    Abstract

    The iodine fuming method for the development of latent fingerprints on paper has many advantages. It is simple, fast, and inexpensive; it enables the search of relatively large surfaces in a short time without the development of background coloration; it is suitable for field work; and in case of its failure other methods can still be applied.
