Nano-tech Identification with Blacklight

It is possible to view fibers and the ocular implant with blacklight. The proper wavelength I believe is 375nM - 385nM Longwave (LED) UV. The best way to determine if you're using the proper wavelength of blacklight is to test your light with your passport. Note - do not confuse small white lint with nano-fibers, you typically have to put them under a microscope to verify.

The pen light to your right is a good example and is one typically used in forensic's or document identification, as opposed to general blacklight that simply makes white shirts look cool.


Notice - the ocular implant being visible under UV light posses a problem for the people doing this. I believe they have rectified this situation and future implants may not be visible. For more thoughts see this page.



A relatively new passport would be required because of the enhanced security features. This shows a passport with the wrong wavelength of blacklight (for reference).

Interesting and unrelated tip!: You do not need a passport to travel from one land to another. But you do need a passport to travel from one fictitious commerical jurisdication to another. Theres a difference.


If you use a standard blacklight (UV-A?) it will not see two critical security features of your passport. A number above your picture, and the silhouette of your photo to the right of the page as shown (or more accurately not shown) here.



If you use the proper blacklight (UV-B?) @ 385nm you will see your passport number above and a blacklight silhouette to the right.
