This paper describes the use of scanning electron microscopy in the analysis of original black toners commercialized in Poland. A total of eighteen printouts of Canon, Dell, Epson and Ricoh manufacturer was analyzed. The analysis showed that the implementation of a much more sensitive method, such as the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) provided new opportunities for the identification of laser printing. The microscopic images obtained allowed us to allocate the characteristic features of toners to specific groups of devices.

W publikacji przedstawiono wyniki analizy struktury powierzchni czarnych tonerów na wydrukach, dokonanej za pomocą skaningowego mikroskopu elektronowego. Przeprowadzono testy tonerów z kilku wydruków pochodzących z 18-laserowych urządzeń drukujących czterech firm: Canon, Dell, Epson i Ricoh. Wdrożenie skaningowej mikroskopii elektronowej do kryminalistycznych badań dokumentów stworzyło nowe możliwości identyfikacji laserowych urządzeń drukujących. Uzyskane obrazy mikroskopowe pozwoliły na przyporządkowanie charakterystycznych cech tonerów do poszczególnych grup urządzeń.
