Accelerator-based analytical techniques for elemental and molecular analysis in forensic science have a great potential in key areas as crime investigations, food, drug and cultural heritage authentication. Although, these analytical techniques are readily available and routinely applied in research, there is still a considerable gap when it comes to forensics applications.
The workshop will provide an advanced training and information exchange platform both for accelerator scientists and forensic end-users. Review of analytical capabilities of accelerator-based techniques including state-of-the-art and technical challenges will be followed by providing guidelines and case studies on how to extend the applicability of accelerator-based techniques to forensics science. A poster session is organized to present and discuss the participants’ research results. Visit of Sincrotrone Elettra and a Forensic Laboratory, will provide hands-on experience. The workshop is open both for young and experienced scientists, forensic experts and policy makers.
