Abstract

Work leading to an improved technique for firearm discharge residue detection by neutron activation is described. The troublesome and time-consuming postirradiation chemistry has been eliminated; also, sample size has been minimized to accommodate some 130 samples per irradiation capsule. To put the method in a proper perspective, previous work has been referenced and discussed.
