Researchers Develop RFID-Enabled 'Smart' Paper
Researchers North Dakota State University have developed a process called Laser Enabled Advanced Packaging (LEAP), a method of embedding RFID chips in paper. The technique has potential for preventing anti-counterfeiting. In this process, lasers are used to transfer as well as assemble the chips on the paper. The paper would thus be called a "smart paper," which in turn can be used for various purposes such as smart labels, banknotes, tickets and legal documents.
