The growth in the number of counterfeit goods in a country is one thing that the Government of a country would do anything to stop.
Based on this, a team of researchers have come to offer solutions as to how this may be met by coming up with a unique tag of Identification that can be attached to products as they are being manufactured.
The tag which is made out of graphene-the thinnest material in the world, is expected to work with a smartphone app. The tag is viewed with the smart phone in order to fathom the authenticity of the product.Its use ranges from products like a trainer to a new set of headphones.
They employed the advantage of the material being thin, by making each tag only an atom thick, which makes duplicating it by fraudsters difficult. Each tag can also be made to be completely unique and then fixed into each separate product.
