Nanometric Imaging

    Methods utilizing nano technology to embed nano material containing encrypted non-visible undetectable data on a wide variety of media for tagging - tracking and secure documents purposes.

    Photon-X has developed a highly specialized series of printable nano technology material (3D-ink) products.

    Based on a combination of two proprietary Photon-X technologies; SPI nanometric sensors and a specialized nano material. This unique material is invisible to the unaided eye and can only be detected, identified and decoded using a Photon-X enabled scanner or camera system.

    3D Ink

    Photon-X has developed a printable nano element known as 3D Ink. This innovative, impenetrable nanometric technology provides a quantum increase in embedded data storage capacity for printed identity and security assets.
