Stopping ID fraud with nanotechnology

Abstract:
Your identity could be made safer thanks to Canadian scientists.

Eugenia Kumacheva from University of Toronto and colleagues have developed a nanostructured polymer material that can be used to record biometric features, such as fingerprints, photos and signatures. They claim that this technology could help prevent counterfeiting and identity fraud.
