An urgent need to develop accurate biometric recognition system is expressed by governmental agencies at the local, state, and federal levels, as well as by private commercial companies. Fingerprinting is the most practical and widely used biometric technique. The pattern of ridges and valleys of each fingerprint is unique. The minutiae based algorithm is(More)
Fingerprints are the most common biometric measure taken, and in recent years electronic fingerprint scanning has become commonplace. Although contactless fingerprinting methods are used, it is more common that the fingerprint is taken by pressing the finger against a computer scanner. In the current study, the advantages of the contactless technique are(More)
We present the design of a novel, mobile, and contact-less, fingerprint line scanner and blood vessel mapper. This system provides a means for acquiring fingerprints with less than 1% distortion in extremely high resolutions, presenting an ideal technology for high-security and individual identification applications. We envision a difficult scenario where(More)
Fingerprint recognition technology is an integral part of criminal investigations. It is the basis for the design of numerous security systems in both the private and public sectors. In a recent study emulating the fingerprinting procedure with widely used optical scanners, it was found that, on average, the distance between ridges decreases about 20% when(More)
The major development of fingerprint technology in the form of wet-ink fingerprinting was initiated and improved for forensic applications by Scotland Yard about 100 years ago. In recent years, new fingerprinting methods such as live scan and contactless methods were developed and continue to evolve. Now-a-days, compatibility between three fingerprinting(More)
The great interest in using infrared imaging for biological and medical applications is motivated by the harmless interaction of small doses of infrared radiation with biological objects and by the technical ability of infrared digital cameras to generate, produce, store, and display the resultant images in situ. In this study, we review the state of the(More)
The level of internal noise of the transistors, diodes, and other semiconductor components limits the successful design of any low noise electronic system. All types of noise, namely, Johnson, 1/f, and so forth, are generated due to activity of crystalline defects such as vacancies, dislocations, and others. The intensity of the electron scattering and(More)
