Abstract

The sub-THz reflectance of the Human palm was imaged while the person was subjected to varying degrees of stress. The pattern of individual pixel intensity and their correlation to stress matched the actual physical distribution of sweat pores on the hand surface. This fact is put forward as a possible novel biometric avenue.
