Oklahoma State University students are making a big difference in a national effort to identify criminals using a sample of automobile paint taken from a crime scene.
 
OSU chemistry professor Barry K. Lavine was awarded a grant to continue his research of automobile paint samples to benefit forensic scientists.
 
Ph.D. student Collin White and undergraduate student Matthew Allen work with him in his chemistry lab on the fourth floor of the Physical Science building.
 
The grant has the potential to speed up the paint sample process using infrared spectral data. In order to do this, the data is obtained from analyzing automotive paint samples to narrowing down suspect vehicles quicker.
