Nanotechnology has continued to prove its superiority to traditional modes of technology in various different industries including medical, imaging and energy sciences. Within forensic science, the role of nanotechnology has been primarily used to both advance forensic analytic techniques and develop smart materials including micro-chip technology, nanomanipulators, and nanoimaging tools.

People across the globe are continuously exposed to chemicals in the products that they consume and use. Generally, these exposures signify little hazard to human health. The risk posed by any specific chemical is a function of its identity (potency) and its quantity (dose). So as to design safe products, producers must have a fundamental comprehension of the underlying toxicology of each ingredient. This allows producers to build safer products and eliminate contaminants and lethal elements.
 Forensic Confirmation Bias (Cognitive Bias in Forensics)
Forensic Confirmation Bias (Cognitive Bias in Forensics)For the past decade, considerable discussion has been made on the extent to which cognitive bias can impact how decisions are made in forensics. Although cognitive bias can arise naturally for a number of different reasons, significant consequences - including incorrect conclusions, overstatements and impartial decisions - may occur.
 Hair Analysis in Forensic Science
Hair Analysis in Forensic ScienceHair samples are one of the most important resources in the forensic analysis of crime scenes, often providing valuable information that can help to lead to the identification of a suspect or victim.
 Analytical Techniques Employed in Microbial Forensics
Analytical Techniques Employed in Microbial ForensicsMicrobial forensics is a subfield of forensics that involves the application of scientific techniques to characterize microbial evidence related to an act of bioterrorism, biocrime or the accidental release of a microbial agent or toxin.
 Mass Spectrometry as a Tool in Forensic Science
Mass Spectrometry as a Tool in Forensic ScienceIn mass spectrometry, a sample is analyzed to determine its molecular composition through the generation of a spectrum that reveals the masses of its component parts. A transfer line introduces the sample into the mass spectrometer, either directly or after passing it through a chromatography-based instrument to separate it into its constituent components.
 Validating Micro-CT for Forensic Investigations
Validating Micro-CT for Forensic InvestigationsDespite the widespread use of medical-grade computed tomography (CT) in death investigations around the world, this imaging technique is often limited in its ability to accurately depict smaller anatomical structures or trauma at the microscopic level.
