IBM's Verifier inspects (and verifies) diamonds, pills and materials at the micron level

It’s not enough in this day and age that we have to deal with fake news, we also have to deal with fake prescription drugs, fake luxury goods, and fake Renaissance-era paintings. IBM’s Verifier is a gadget and platform made (naturally) to instantly verify that something is what it claims to be, by inspecting it at a microscopic level. It allows the camera to detect features as small as a micron — for comparison, a human hair is usually a few dozen microns wide. At the micron level there are patterns and optical characteristics that aren’t visible to the human eye, like precisely which wavelengths of light it reflects. I’m more impressed by the lens they put together that can resolve at a micron level with so little distortion and not exclude or distort the colors too much.
