Title (EN) METHODS FOR IDENTIFICATION AND VERIFICATION
(FR) PROCEDE D'IDENTIFICATION ET DE VERIFICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method in which one or more taggants that are intrinsically located or extrinsically placed in an article or product (11). The taggants are detected by X-ray fluorescence analysis (20, 21) to identify or verify the article or its point of manufacture. The taggants are manufactured as part of the article or the taggant is placed into a coating, label, or otherwise embedded within the article for the purpose of later verifying the presence or absence of these elements by X-ray fluorescence, thus determining the unique elemental composition of the taggant within the article.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil et un procédé relatifs à la mise en place, intérieure ou extérieure, d'un ou plusieurs traceurs sur un article ou produit (11). Lesdits traceurs se détectent par analyse par fluorescence aux rayons X (20, 21), ce qui permet d'identifier ou de vérifier l'article ou son lieu de fabrication. Les traceurs, intégrés à l'article lors de sa fabrication ou placés dans son emballage ou son étiquette, ou noyés d'une autre manière dans l'article, permettent de vérifier ultérieurement leur présence ou leur absence par fluorescence aux rayons X, et de déterminer leur analyse élémentaire unique.
