Physics and Inorganic Analytics,
Geology and Botany

In our department experts with different professions –, and – investigate wide range of , both organic and inorganic material residues, excluding those of human origin. Furthermore, physicist experts answer the questions in connection to theoretical problems such as case reconstruction (way of human body’s falling). Chemist experts additionally, take a part in building up national databases and spectrum libraries of dyes, fibres, paints etc.

Our examinations require not only human judgement, training and experience in this area but using of special analytical equipments, microscopes, SEM, SEM-EDS, FTIR and Raman spectrophotometers with microscopes.
