Polymer Optics Iris Recognition

Iris pattern is a unique human body characteristic. Iris is an internal and protected yet externally visible part of the human eye whose complex random patterns are unique, stable, and can be seen from some distance. Biometrics iris recognition technology uses these properties for biometric identification and authentication.

Syntec Optics was highly involved in designing precision optical, mechanical hardware and an iris recognition device software. Initially, a major challenge was overcoming peoples’ psychological inhibitions regarding having lasers scan their eyes. After the assessment, Syntec Optics determined that moving to a white light laser solved this challenge, opening the door to a wider market. Contact Syntec Optics for additional information.
