|20140270334||COVERT MARKING SYSTEM BASED ON MULTIPLE LATENT CHARACTERISTICS - Described are systems for combining multiple latent characteristics within a pigment such that with certain specialized knowledge and tools the specific pigment can be uniquely authenticated. The system takes advantage of the rapid proliferation of artificial light sources that are characterized by combinations of narrow band light sources that combine to simulate natural, or broadband light sources. With knowledge of the ambient lighting spectral emissions and the ability to illuminate the subject with an alternative light source with different spectral emissions, it is possible to determine the presence of the latent characteristics within the pigment. In some embodiments of the system, a smartphone including a CMOS or CCD sensor and a LED light source, could be combined with software to authenticate all of the latent characteristics. These characteristics can be combined with each other in different proportions to mass customize unique solutions for each customer or product line.||09-18-2014|
|20140263658||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING TANGIBLE MEDIUM WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC SECURITY MARKER - Mediums that include features that work together to create a medium that can be tracked, identified and authenticated efficiently and accurately. In addition, these features may be concealed to prevent or hinder potential copiers from copying or passing off a copy as an original. Further, these features may allow organizations to determine the origin of a copy.||09-18-2014|
|20140233842||CHARACTERISTIC VERIFICATION SYSTEM - Described is a characteristic verification system that includes security marks, devices, systems and methods that may be used to authenticate a material good and to provide strong brand protection. A device, such as a smartphone, that includes a software application, a camera and a light source, may be used to interrogate the security mark and connect to remote servers to authenticate the material good at varying levels of assurance. In addition to authenticating the good, the system may also authenticate the user and provide different information to different users and/or limit information that is provided unauthenticated users.||08-21-2014|
|20140016325||ILLUMINATION SOURCES AND SUBJECTS HAVING DISTINCTLY MATCHED AND MISMATCHED NARROW SPECTRAL BANDS - A light source is configured to emit a narrow peak at a discrete spectral band, especially at a primary color wavelength. The light source can have a plurality of narrow peaks to simulate the effect of a broadband light source. A subject is provided with a pigment, such as certain rare earth lanthanides, with a strong absorption peak at a corresponding narrow spectral band. The pigment has a nominal color when illuminated by a true broadband light (e.g., sunlight) that does not have a narrow peak at the discrete spectral band, and has a different color when illuminated by the light source that has a narrow peak. This color shift can be used for security authentication, information and decorative applications.||01-16-2014|
|20090109682||Illumination Sources And Subjects Having Distinctly Matched And Mismatched Narrow Spectral Bands - A light source is configured to emit narrow peaks at discrete spectral bands, especially primary color wavelengths, added to simulate the effect of a broadband light source. A subject is provided with a pigment, examples being certain rare earth lanthanides, with a strong absorption peak at a corresponding narrow spectral band. The pigment has a nominal hue under true broadband light. When illuminated by the narrow band source, the absorption peak eliminates the contribution of one of the primary colors, producing a distinct shift in hue of the pigmented subject. The change in hue cannot be anticipated from the appearance of illuminated subjects that lack the pigment, which remain normal. The narrow absorption peak is not noticeable under unmatched light sources or true broadband light sources, e.g., sunlight. The hue shift effect is useful for security authentication, informational and decorative applications.||04-30-2009|
