Nanotech Security Corp. (the “Company”), developer of next-generation security and authentication features using patented nano-optics, is pleased to announce that it has received a Technology Impact Award (TIA) for Most Promising Pre-Commercial Technology at the annual British Columbia Technology Industry Association awards ceremony.
The award recognizes the outstanding achievement for a technological advancement that has high potential to commercialize within five years.
Nanotech Security CEO, Doug Blakeway commented ”Our optical nanotechnology exploits a similar phenomenon found on the iridescent wings of the Morpho butterfly, which have a grid of tens of millions of nano-scale (billionth of a meter) markings that trap, intensify and reflect light in a way that causes the wings to scintillate brilliant colours. At Nanotech Security we have developed a patented technology that improves on nature by directly embossing nanometer-scale indentations onto various materials using algorithms which increase hole density by a factor of ten creating true recognizable pure colour images which can even be animated. The potential for enhanced anti-counterfeiting and other commercial applications are far beyond any existing image-based technologies such as holograms.”
Mr Blakeway added ”We appreciate the recognition of the BC Technology Industry Association whose membership and resources are a constant source of support and inspiration for us. The association makes an important contribution to the economic well-being of all British Columbians.”
On Behalf of the Board of Directors of Nanotech Security Corp.
