Invisible codes designed to tackle the issue of fake goods have been created by US researchers. The Quick Response (QR) codes are more often used in the advertising industry to allow customers access to product information. The invisible version can be printed onto paper, glass or other materials and is invisible to the naked eye, becoming visible under infrared light. The code’s complexity means they are hard to replicate, researchers said. Fake goods and banknotes cost governments and industries billions of pounds each year.
