Researchers have developed a new method to combat counterfeiting, which can not be circumvented
Today to buy a fake is very simple, especially if you are used to order products from online stores. Large corporations in every possible way struggle with this, but counterfeiting is still there. Researchers from Lancastershire University in the UK invented a new way to combat counterfeiting. They propose to use quantum physics paired with the latest smartphones. According to them, this method cannot be forged: in fact, each product receives a unique “fingerprint”.
Previously, the team of researchers created the unique identifiers of the atomic proportions on the basis of irregularities found in 2D materials such as graphene. Them, in contrast to the modern technology of anti-counterfeiting, such as holograms, impossible to duplicate. The use of quantum physics gives the opportunity to further strengthen these ridges, having a peculiar mark.
Now scientists have developed an app for smartphones that allows you to map this 2D fingerprint to a database of the manufacturer and find out whether this product real or fake. These prints can be placed on any surface, so to use them you will work on everything, from wine to automotive parts.
The researchers promise to launch its technology to the market in the first half of 2018.
