DIT Hothouse posted this:New Anti-Counterfeit Technology - Pressure Sensitive HologramsDublin Institute of Technology (DIT) researchers have invented a unique, patented hologram that changes colour under pressure and has widespread applications for security, authentication and environmental sensing. Holograms are frequently used for security and authentication, and are commonly found on credit cards, bank notes, passports and concert tickets, as well as on a number of high value goods such as pharmaceutical drugs, clothing and accessories. They can also be used as sensors if the hologram is sensitive to changes in its environment, and for tamper detection for document security. Current holographic solutions are usually mass produced from a single master hologram, resulting in identical holograms, with serialisation applied via standard overprinting, allowing the holograms to be either tampered or copied. The pressure-sensitive optical device developed at DIT allows the production of true individual holograms. Specific customer codes can be embedded into the actual hologram during manufacture, making them extremely difficult to copy but very easy for the end user authentication through a pressure-induced colour change of the hologram. The colour change can be either temporary or permanent, depending on specific requirements. This optical device can be a purely visual feature to be used for authentication by the end customer/consumer using thumb pressure, or it can also be designed to be machine readable for automated checking within the supply chain.

Cracow University of Technology posted this:Suspension containing gold or silver nanoparticles or a mixture thereof and a production method thereofThe present invention relates to a process for the preparation of nanosilver and nanogold using an aqueous extract of dog rose, white grape and knotweed. Substances which were extracted from these plants act both as reducer of silver and gold ions and stabilizing agent of forming silver and gold nanodispersion, preventing them from agglomeration and inhibiting their growth, so that the resulting particle size does not exceed 100 nm.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New procedure for the elimination of printed ink from plastic filmThe most innovative aspects of this technology are: • The process for the removal of the ink is completely innovative and ecological, because it does not use organic solvents. • The technology has been successfully tested on different plastics, such as Polythene, Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. It is viable for both water and solvent based inks.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Device to determine the food shelf-lifeThe Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has designed a device to test the food oxidation, which applies real conditions of storage and transport combining light, temperature and dimensions of the device. This device allows determining the oxidative stability of the samples within a period of not more than one month, applying mild temperatures far below than the high temperatures commonly applied in Rancimat. Food enterprises interested in the utility model are searched to develop and market the compartment.
