Abstract:

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II project is to develop advanced nanometrology of carbonaceous nanomaterials, in particular for the burgeoning counterfeit detection marketplace. Nanotechnology offers a new paradigm for the world's anti-counterfeiting efforts; in particular, the carbon nanotube (CNT) offers a new means for development of irreproducible labels. This project will develop an instrumentation platform for field operations in counterfeiting detection. The World Customs Organization estimates that counterfeiting accounts for 5% (or more) of global trade. Through the tailorable material properties of nanomaterials, there is an opportunity to offer a new development paradigm of anti-counterfeiting labeling platforms. Such labels could be used across a broad swath of the world's economy in products such as drug packaging, food processing, electronics, etc.
