Title (EN) PORTABLE AUTHENTICATION DEVICE AND METHOD OF AUTHENTICATING PRODUCTS OR PRODUCT PACKAGING
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'AUTHENTIFICATION PORTABLE ET PROCEDE D'AUTHENTIFICATION DE PRODUITS OU D'EMBALLAGES DE PRODUIT
Abstract:
(EN) A portable authentication device and method of authenticating products or packaging by analyzing key ingredients on products or on product packaging is disclosed. Light-sensitive compounds can be used to identify the product or product packaging. The product or product package may include visible or invisible ink containing a particular light-sensitive compound. The ink may be printed in one or more locations on the product or product packaging to produce an authentication mark, such as a bar code. The device includes an assembly for providing a source of light to irradiate the ink containing the light sensitive compound on the sample product or product package, an optical detector to detect certain spectral properties emitted or absorbed by the irradiated ink and a controller to determine the authenticity of the sample product or product package by comparing the emitted or absorbed properties to a standard.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'authentification et un procédé permettant d'authentifier des produits ou des emballages de produit. Des composants photosensibles peuvent être utilisés afin d'identifier le produit ou l'emballage de produit. Le produit ou l'emballage de produit peut comprendre une encre visible ou invisible contenant un composant photosensible spécifique. L'encre peut être imprimée à un ou plusieurs endroits du produit ou de l'emballage de produit de manière à produire une marque d'authentification, telle qu'un code barre. Le dispositif comprend un ensemble permettant de fournir une source de lumière servant à illuminer l'encre contenant le composé photosensible sur l'échantillon de produit ou sur l'emballage de produit ; un détecteur optique permettant de détecter certaines propriétés spectrales émises ou absorbées par l'encre illuminée ; et une unité de commande permettant de déterminer l'authenticité de l'échantillon de produit ou l'emballage de produit par comparaison des propriétés émises ou absorbées avec les propriétés classiques.
