    Abstract

    The use of in situ laser-luminescence and excitation spectroscopy for examination of questioned documents is investigated. It is found that such spectroscopy can at times discriminate between similar inks when conventional methods are unsuccessful. A particularly effective procedure for room temperature luminescence enhancement is presented and compared with luminescence at cryogenic temperatures.
