Fingerprint identification is a well-regarded and widely accepted modality in the field of biometrics for its high recognition rates. Legacy 2D contact based methods, though highly evolved in terms of technology suffer from certain drawbacks. Being contact based, there are many known issues which affect the recognition rates. Flashscan3D/University of Kentucky (UKY) developed state of the art 3D non-contact fingerprint scanners using different structured light illumination (SLI) techniques namely SLI single Point Of View (POV) and the SLI Subwindowing techniques. Capturing the fingerprints by non-contact means in 3D gives much higher quality fingerprint data which ultimately improves matching rates over a traditional 2D approach. In this paper, we present a full hand 3D non-contact scanner using the SLI Sub-windowing technique. Sample fingerprint data and experimental results for fingerprint matching based on a small sample 3D fingerprint test set are presented.
