Mophiria, in collaboration with ISORG from France, has developed a technology that enables vein authentication using an ultra-thin film sensor with a thickness of approximately 1mm.
Vein authentication is a method that accurately identifies individuals by utilizing the unique vein patterns that vary from person to person.
In the conventional vein authentication process, stable vein images required a focal distance of several centimeters, achieved by using optical lenses to concentrate light onto the image sensor.
The newly announced technology combines ISORG’s OPD (Organic Photodetector + Thin-Film Transistor Backplane) technology, optical control, and Mophiria’s proprietary vein authentication technology, enabling authentication in an extremely thin form factor.
As a result, vein authentication becomes feasible in various scenarios and devices such as wearable devices, mobile devices, and other IoT devices.
The sensor can be placed on the same plane as the film sensor, using Mophiria’s unique reflection and scattering method, to irradiate near-infrared LEDs onto the veins.
Mophiria is already engaged in collaborations with multiple manufacturers and aims to commercialize the technology within a year.
Furthermore, Mophiria assures flexibility in accommodating the size, performance, and other requirements of the sensor, depending on the shape and application of the devices it will be integrated into.
