Optimal Banknote Security with Engaging and Intuitive Authentication Effects.
QUANTUM™ stripe enables new dimensions of security and storytelling for banknotes. It combines multi -directional movement, 3D stereo depth, high resolution, and multiple colours to deliver unique visual effects that are easy to authenticate and difficult to replicate. It is backed by META®’s award-winning nano-optic display technology – KolourOptik® that is exclusive to the banknote and secure document industry.
QUANTUM™ stripe provides a high level of public engagement while enhancing the overall theme of a banknote through a toolkit of engaging, highly customizable, and intuitive authentication effects. Our pure plasmonic colour pixels patterned on ultra-thin microstructures create ‘always on’ effects that are unique, simple to understand, memorable and highly secure.
This ultra-thin, surface-applied form factor makes QUANTUM™ stripe compatible with all banknote substrates and production equipment, removing the risk of banknote distortion without requiring specialized application machinery or changes to existing processes.
Memorable Visual Effects
QUANTUM™ stripe security features instantly draw attention and promote a memorable self-authentication experience.
Highly visible, easily triggered authentication across wide viewing angles and complex lighting conditions.
Flexible Production Compatibility
Ultra-thin, surface-applied, and compatible with existing banknote industry production processes, substrates, and application machinery.
Highly robust, formulated to meet or exceed industry standards. Exceptional best-in-class durability.
Built on a single layer of embossed material, without inks or dyes, making it one of the greenest security features available.
75% Thinner Than Micro-Lens Technology
The inherent strength and integrity of nanoscale structures guarantee a highly durable feature with a thickness of under ten microns.

Learn about our Sustainable Science
Metamaterials do more with less – using a fraction of the material of competing micro-lens solutions, there is no need for laminated layers of lens-arrays, focal spacers, and inks or dyes. Visual effects are produced from the single layer of embossed structures.
- Reduce the quantity and variety of material for enhanced sustainable security.
- Reduce the number of production variables while increasing durability and consistency.
- Single-layer metallized nanostructures, without inks, lenses, or lamination.
- Secure production facility powered by renewable hydroelectric energy.
- Plasmonic metastructures require no dyes, inks, micro-lenses, or gratings.
