High-resolution fingerprint sensing with vertical Piezoelectric nanowire MATrices
PiezoMAT
Small or medium-scale focused research project
2013-2016


The paradigm of societal uses protected by biometric identification (ID) – from national security and controlled access, to health care, banking and leisure – requires coming up with ever more reliable built-in ID detection systems. In this context, PiezoMAT proposes a new technology of high-resolution fingerprint sensors based on a matrix of interconnected piezoelectric nanowires (NWs).
