Anti-fraud lasers and inks for transparent electronics

08 November 2013

A detection device which uses printed lasers to identify counterfeit goods has been developed by researchers, who say that it could help to make products more resistant to fraud.
The detector is one of a number of innovations covered in a new report by the Cambridge Innovation and Knowledge Centre (CIKC). The same document also outlines a new method for printing graphene, showing how the one atom-thick material could be used to make cheap, printed electronics. Using a graphene-based ink, researchers have created a transparent, flexible piano. These simple displays can be used in a wide range of smart packaging applications (News Item University of Cambridge, 5 November 2013).
