Title: Phosphor Crystal Materials: A Design of an Anti-Counterfeiting Feature
Authors: Jamiyanaa, Suren
Advisors: Nosenchuck, Daniel
Department: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Class Year: 2019
Abstract: This senior thesis outlines a prototype feature that can identify whether a product is fake or real, specifically within the luxury goods market. A market analysis and research on existing technologies was conducted to lead to product optimization and development. The result is a prototype that utilizes rare-earth and patented phosphor crystals that can be activated and illuminated the infrared light emitted by an iPhone X. In addition, a proof of concept software that provides an additional level of security from a counterfeiter was written. The software will ultimately verify for the other whether the label is from the brand or a counterfeit label, using image processing and color detection algorithms. This technology can give consumers confidence into purchasing luxury items in online marketplaces and the growing resale market.
