15 July 2004 Polarization-encoded discriminators for secured fingerprint verification systems
Author Affiliations +
We develop new techniques for polarization-encoded fingerprint images that correspond to Stokes vector imagery. We show how the polarization-encoded images can effectively be used to increase the discrimination capabilities of fingerprint systems for security applications in defense, law enforcement and civilian areas. Computer simulation supported by optical experiments is also presented to further support the validity of the proposed technique.
