I saw this release today, and just had to share it with anyone I could find.
"Every paper, plastic, metal and ceramic surface is microscopically
different and has its own 'fingerprint'. Professor Cowburn's LSA system
uses a laser to read this naturally occurring 'fingerprint'. The
accuracy of measurement is often greater than that of DNA with a
reliability of at least one million trillion."
I love it when old technologies and science are used in interesting new
ways to impact the future.
Expect to see this technology at an airport near you, in five years or so.
