The two most important CRS techniques are Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) and Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS). The biochemical image contrast of CRS is in many ways complementary to the molecular contrast obtained in fluorescence microscopy. A second crucial advantage of these methods is that they preserve the specimen/sample in a near pristine state. This reference list presents current and basic papers on CRS microscopy. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/cars-publication-list/ Tue, 08 Oct 2019 22:00:00 +0000 Dr. Volker Schweikhard https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17522 Forensics Digital Microscopy Image Gallery: Digital Microscopy in Forensics – Examples From Ballistics, Document, and Trace Evidence Investigations Forensic experts work with a broad range of microscopes to examine evidence from firearms and tool marks, documents, forensic or legal medicine, hair and fibers as well as glass and paint. Digital microscopes support many of these investigations, in which the materials can be very different in character. This image gallery shows examples what digital microscopy can reveal in typical forensics’ samples. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/galleries/image-gallery-forensics/image-gallery-digital-microscopy-in-forensics-examples-from-ballistics-document-and-trace-evidence-investigations/ Mon, 21 Mar 2016 18:00:00 +0000 Claudia Müller, MSc Michael Doppler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/14156 Forensics 125 Years of Comparison Microscopy – From the "camera lucida" to the Automated Comparison Bridge To be able to optically compare two objects with scientific accuracy, it must be possible to view them at the same time. This is particularly true for comparing small objects that can only be visualized with the aid of an optical magnification system. If you only have one microscope and have to look at the objects alternately, you need an excellent memory and can never rule out the risk of judgment errors, especially when examining objects with only minor differences in structure, color or profile. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/125-years-of-comparison-microscopy-from-the-camera-lucida-to-the-automated-comparison-bridge/ Tue, 12 Aug 2014 09:11:00 +0000 Rolf Beck https://www.leica-microsystems.com/9571 Forensics In the Catacombs of the Capuchin Monastery in Palermo It has always been a deeply rooted human need to give life a meaning after death. At the end of the 16th century, the friars of the Capuchin monastery in Palermo, Italy, began preserving corpses by embalming them. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/in-the-catacombs-of-the-capuchin-monastery-in-palermo/ Thu, 02 May 2013 12:51:00 +0000 M.

Jörg Scheidt https://www.leica-microsystems.com/8389 Forensics Stereo Microscopy Every Clue Counts – Forensics Inconceivable Without Microscopy There is no crime without clues. They may be obvious, like a cartridge case at the scene of the crime or clear signs of crowbar damage on a door. But sometimes, clues are microscopically small. Besides the classic fingerprints, perpetrators also leave hairs or fiber traces. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/every-clue-counts-forensics-inconceivable-without-microscopy/ Wed, 06 Mar 2013 23:00:00 +0000 M.

Benecke is a welcome guest on talk shows on topics such as forensic trace analysis, murder or the depths of the human psyche in general. He also enjoys an excellent international reputation. However, Mark Benecke’s normal working day bears little resemblance to the scenes shown in TV crime drama series. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/even-insect-fragments-throw-light-on-how-crimes-are-committed-how-forensic-biologist-dr-mark-benecke-gains-insights/ Sun, 02 Sep 2012 22:00:00 +0000 M.

But what exactly is it that makes a fingerprint so valuable for detectives in real life? How do fingerprint experts, known as dactyloscopists, perform their jobs? https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/how-a-fingerprint-is-traced-to-the-person-who-made-it-interactive-microscope-system-facilitates-dactyloscopist-training/ Sun, 12 Aug 2012 22:00:00 +0000 M.

And the more sophisticated the security standards, the better equipped experts have to be in order to clearly differentiate between genuine documents and fakes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/genuine-or-fake/ Tue, 30 Aug 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph.

Even counterfeiters want to get rid of their own creations as quickly as possible. However, experts work intensively to identify counterfeit money on behalf of the law. Martin Weber of the National Analysis Center of the German Bundesbank (Federal Bank) in Mainz is such an expert on forged banknotes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/forensics/collecting-funny-money/ Thu, 11 Aug 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph.
