The basic physical phenomenon exploited by the VeriVin system is the Raman effect. Every molecule has its own frequency and, when hit by a laser, scatters photons of light in a unique way. This light scattering can be recorded and measured, effectively creating an “optical fingerprint” of the initial substance. VeriVin’s ground-breaking technology can detect Raman scattering in complex liquids such as wine, whiskey, and olive oil even through sealed containers of differing colors, thicknesses, and material types.
Each scan our instruments makes is then added and compared to our growing database of optical fingerprints. Machine learning algorithms subsequently analyse your bottle in context, helping to provide answers to questions of authenticity, provenance, and condition.
