Magnetic susceptibility measurements over the temperature range 4 to 300K have been used to identify and distinguish among various samples of headlight glass. With a few exceptions, it is found that the technique can be useful in such applications and that improvements in accuracy, which are possible, would even eliminate these exceptions. The method is also applicable to the identification of other types of sample of forensic sceince interest such as soils, window glass, and metals.
