Novel fluorescent polymers for anti-counterfeiting device technologies


There exists within the anticounterfeiting industry, a constant need for new methods and technologies which provide security against counterfeiting. This need is driven by the ever increasing ability of individuals to defeat current anticounterfeiting measures. The diverse range of organizations affected by counterfeiting activities include governments, banks, credit companies and producers of luxury items. Magnetic data strips and holograms are now easily reproduced, leading to massive losses to some of the organizations already mentioned due to fraud and counterfeiting. The objectives of the proposed project are to take some of the unusual optical properties of a new family of polymers and integrate them into practical anticounterfeiting devices. At the same time, optical detection products suitable for use with these devices will also be developed. It is the overall objective of the proposed project to produce complete prototype anticounterfeiting systems marketable as a single package.
