Abstract

This paper discusses the development of a rapid, large-scale integration of deterministic dopant placement technique for encoding information in physical structures at the nanoscale. The doped structures inherit identical and customizable radiofrequency (RF) electronic signature, which could be leveraged into an identification feature unique to the tag item. This will allow any manufactured item (integrated circuit, pharmaceutical, etc.) to be uniquely identifiable and authenticatable. Applications of this technology include enabling a secure Internet of Things (IoT) and eliminating counterfeit products.
